Description

Trespiano is a neighborhood in the Tuscany region of Italy, where artist Tom Salvatore Fricano traveled on a Fulbright Scholarship in 1960-’61. The hamlet is located along the Via Bolognese and features the softly rolling hills, meandering country roads, and towering cypress for which the famous region is known.

This work shows the artist’s abstract expressionist period at its strongest, before he began to move toward Op Art. The nearly fantastical landscape is a tangle of roads, fruit trees, and vineyards, inviting the viewer to wander through. Fricano uses a variety of intaglio techniques to achieve depth and texture and capture the gentle chaos of the Tuscan countryside.
