Born in Argentina, this artist was the son of an Italian sculptor. From 1905 to 1922 Lucio Fontana worked with his father in Argentine as a sculptor. In 1927, he returned to Italy and in 1930 he presented his first exhibition. During the next ten years, Lucio Fontana worked with abstract and expressionist painters in Italy and France. He created mysterious illusions and depth when painting on canvas lined with black gauze. Sometimes he created artwork using scattered fragments of Murano glass.
