Francesco Tabusso(June 27th,1930-January 29th, 2012) :
He was probably the most celebrated contemporary Turinese painter in Italy, not to mention the student and spiritual heir of Felice Casorati(1883-1963), who took the young Tabusso (he had just turned 24) to the Venice Biennale in 1954. A master of simplicity and nature, Tabusso has been present at the top international shows and is noted for his altar-piece in the Church of St. Francis of Assisi in Milan. Born in Sesto San Giovanni in 1930, Tabusso graduated from the classical liceo of Rosmini in Turin, where the poet Edoardo Sanguineti and the architect Andrea Bruno were his classmates. From 1949 to 1954 he studied under Felice Casorati: "Casorati taught me to paint methodically, to be a painter who paints like an artisan... I think that what I learned from Casorati was not just how to paint, but how to live as a painter." A painter who at just 24 years of age was invited to the Venice Biennale with his works Comizio, Festa campestre and Albero caduto ("Meeting", "Rural festival" and "Fallen tree"), and who in 1955 was present at the Unione Culturale along with Francesco Casorati, Mauro Chessa and Nino Aimone. Along with Ruggeri, Saroni, Campagnoli, Fico and Soffiantino, they embarked on an astonishing artistic adventure in the spirit of deep friendship. He also partipated again to the Venice Biennale in 1956 and 1958 up to the recognition assigned to it in 1966 with a solo. Already thirty years Tabusso is established painter with the invitations to the most prestigeous international festivals, including brussels, New York, Moscow, and Alexandria. In 1975 the Great Pala realized Absidale " The Canticle of the Creatures" for the Church of St. Francis of Assisi in Milan, designed by Gio Ponti, the work completed after four triptychs dedicated to "Little flowers of St. Francis."
