Biography of Cesare Peverelli
Cesare Peverelli is born in Milan in 1922. He is a student of the Academy of Brera (Milan) and has a passion for music. He binds with the group Corrente. The artist begins exhibiting in 1941 and participates, therefore, to a very numerous group exhibitions (Venice Biennial, Rome Quadiennial, Salon of Mai, etc.). In 1946, a fierce opponent of the fascist regime, Peverelli is a signatory of the manifesto Oltre Guernica. In 1951, he joins the spacial group (Lucio Fontana, Roberto Crippa, Gianni Dova, Beniamino Joppolo, Antonino Tullier, etc.), and signs the fourth and fifth manifesto. He settles in Paris in 1957, he comes into contact with painters like Roberto Matta, Bernard Saby, Enrique Zanartu and meets writers. In 1967, he participates in the exhibition "Signs of a surrealist revival" organized in Brussels by Patrick Waldberg. One can detect in his work early references to Bacon or Sutherland after various experiments related to the neo-figuration of Picasso, and especially that of Giacometti. Peverelli, who discovered the works of Otto Wols and Pollock, practices for a while the gestural automatism in the early 50s. The artist then is willingly linked to surrealism. The Museum of Modern Art in the City of Paris in 1976 offers him more rooms to exhibit his works. Cesare Peverelli dies in Seillans (Var, France) in 2000.
