One of the pivotal figures of Italian Futurism during the inter-war years.

Gerardo Dottori, Lake-Dawn, 1942

Dottori is best known for his depictions of the Umbrian landscape, viewed from a great height. He was one of the first artists to become associated with 'aeropainting', producing a series of works in this style throughout the early 1920s. In 1929 he signed the Futurist Manifesto of Aeropainting.

This exhibition encompasses his renowned flight-related paintings, as well his initial Divisionist works and later experimentation with abstract imagery.
