Edgardo Curcio – Section 6: Pastels and watercolours

From testimonies of that period, we learn that in Curcio’s production there must have been much more watercolours and pastels than the ones that came down to us.

Here we exhibit a few samples, which however already indicate his competence in this field as well.

Since even in oil painting he loved light drafts – so much so that in some cases it is easy to mistake one of his oils for a watercolour – we can well imagine how congenial he felt these techniques which, by their nature, are based on the lightness of the draft and on the transparencies able to give us back a high degree of luminosity.
