Alberto Burri

(Città di Castello, 12 March 1915 – Niece, 13 February 1995)

He began painting in 1943, in the prison camp of the Hereford Allies in Texas.
Returning to Italy in 1946, he settled in Rome and dedicated himself to painting. In 1947 and 1948 he held his first personal exhibitions in Rome at the Galleria La Margherita.
In 1951 he took part in the foundation of the "Origine" group with Ballocco, Capogrossi, Colla, and the following year he exhibited Neri and Muffe at the Galleria dell'Obelisco.
Since 1950 the Sacchi took over, to predominate in personal exhibitions that, after Rome, were held in various American and European cities.
