Emilio Tadini

Year and place of birth: 1927, Milan, Italy Date of death: 2002 , Milan, Italy

Emilio Tadini was a prominent figure in the post-war Italian art world. He was a visual artist, writer, journalist and art historian. His friend, the Italian author Umberto Eco, described him as “a painter who writes and a writer who paints”. Tadini’s visual oeuvre, strongly influenced by his work as an author, has a closer connection to the more introspective and personal British pop art than to its glossy American counterpart. He was also greatly influenced by surrealism and cubism.
