Emilio Vedova (1919-2006) was both a witness to, and a protagonist of, the turbulent twentieth century. He is the most important, postwar Venetian, world oriented, painter who, precisely in this region, left tangible signs of his fertile artistic legacy, where ethics and aesthetics, to him an indissoluble pair, were a constant in his work.
Vedova left a wealth of extraordinary works that are not only acts of art but also priceless documents of the social and political history of those five decades full of contradictions, remorse, hopes and misdeeds, to which he gave voice and the power of his painting’s unmistakable
and irreversible sign.
