This painting was previously for sale.

Provenance: Galerie Collection d'Art, Amsterdam, aldaar ca. 1985 verworven, daarna door vererving in bezit gekomen van de vorige eigenaar.

Armando: sculptor, violinist, theater and filmmaker, painter, writer, poet. Existential themes are addressed in his work: good and evil, transience, melancholy, war, suffering. The tragedy of man, in all its facets, is depicted by Armando. His experiences in the Second World War are the source for his work. As a child living near Kamp Amersfoort, he was immediately confronted with the horrors of the war. As a result, destruction and distortion as a visual principle play an essential role in his work. The paintings and sculptures are overwhelming because of their monumentality and dramatic appearance. Austerity in material, colour and shape, and a rough, pasty texture give his artworks the visual power of an archetype.
