Born in Citta di Castello | 1915 – 1995
Buri’s arrangement with the National Committee for Fine Arts in Rome, and especially good relations with gallery owner and painter Mario Penelope, concluded in receiving Alberto’s painting entitled “White S-1964”, mixed media on Masonite, 38x92cm. Onward communication with the author was continued via mail. Buri is regarded as one of the masters of enormous painting art which will be the reason to gain huge number of fans, especially in Italy. His paintings, created during the war, are regarded as a commentary or even more precisely act of evoking of fear that the II World War has caused. Nevertheless, the magical appearance of the rough approach is less noticeable in this painting. Buri is concentrating on the concrete white space and burned plastic foil form. Primary issue in this artwork is the white color, which is presenting the sense of optimism. Above mentioned characteristics of his work bring us to the conclusion that it is a representative exemplar of Alberto’s Buri opus.
