A large private collection, with works partly unpublished of extraordinary value. The artist’s works were sold at auction by Sotheby’s and by the main Italian auction houses. A choice aimed at creating a great retrospective and promoting the artist, taking him back to the centre of the Italian art market. Borgonovo was an important landscape painter and portraitist of the Italian 20th century, who took part in six biennial exhibitions. In 1920 he won the Principe Umberto prize with his work “Tramonto dicembrino nella campagna milanese”, then purchased by the Edison company, Milan. A refined and passionate painter, he did not stop at the honours and awards he acquired between the 1920s and 1930s in the most important Italian showcases, but to success he preferred the deep reasons of life and art that drove him away from the Milanese territories. His pictorial ability remained extraordinarily free in its formation and growth, with a singular extraneousness not only to the 20th century but also to the trends of his time, as far away as it was from the anxieties of the avant-gardes and from the tormenting doubts about the destiny of painting. “In him you do not feel the weight of the 20th century nor the weight of a traditional art”.
The artist Borgonovo Giovanni was a Lombard painter active in the 20th century. He was born in Milan in 1881 and died in Milan in 1975, at the age of 94.
