Welcome to the world of Domenico Gnoli, an Italian artist who died in 1970 at age 36.

He only painted about 140 “mature” paintings between 64’and 69’, this show brings together 18 of them. Last time Gnoli showed in NY was in 1969 at the Sydney Janis gallery, how crazy is that!! I spy Francesca Martelli’s nape in the right corner…nice!

The beautiful Hope Atherton likes Gnoli too
