Enzo Brunori | Original prints, lithographs, etchings and illustrated books



Enzo Brunori (Perugia, 1924 - Rome, 1993) was an Italian painter.

After completing his fine arts studies in Perugia, he began to enter, very young, in cultural circles, so much so that even the hierarchs of the cry of the time try to take him to Rome, but Brunori not feeling ready decides to stay in Umbria.

In 1947 he set up his first official exhibition in his city, coming into contact with both Gerardo Dottori and the art critic Lionello Venturi, fundamental figures for his artistic development.

Famous for the representation of nature, he loved to depict plants and seas as natural elements seen as the reason for being. In 1953 he won a purchase award within the Spoleto Prize. He participated in two editions of the Venice Biennale. He became a professor of painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome.

In 1963 one of his works was exhibited at the Contemporary Italian Paintings exhibition, set up in some Australian cities. In 1963-64 he exhibited at the exhibition Peintures italiennes d'aujourd'hui, set up in the Middle East and North Africa.

After a last anthology staged in Perugia in 1988, he retired to private life until his premature death in 1993.

From April 23 to May 16, 2008, in Rome, in the Vittoriano Hall of Columns, the anthological exhibition took place: "Enzo Brunori - A poetic of color in the late twentieth century" by Enrico Crispolti, De Luca Editori d'Arte catalog , shows that had the High Patronage of the Presidency of the Republic and the Patronages of the Regions of Umbria and Lazio; of the Provinces of Perugia and Rome and of the Municipalities of Rome and Perugia.
