Style

The Angela Fagu’s Art, both in pictorial that in engraver field, is characterized by an extraordinary expressive authenticity, combined with a deep taste in the tract and an excellent method of composition. The constructive energy of the graphic sign as well as the firm compositional structure, that holds each figuration, are the result of a careful preparation in the academic area. The strength of the sign and the decisive plastic-structural definition of the compositions is tempered, however, thanks to a general sensitivity of vision, which is manifested in the delicate chiaroscuro passages and in the refined and enveloping atmospheric modulations. The artworks thus maintain an intimate and refined dimension even when the subjects is illustrious as in “Portrait of Pietro Annigoni.” In portraits the artistic language of Angela Fagu seems to express its highest potential, creating images insightful, where the optic truth is interwoven with a subtle but intense psychological dynamism.

Engraving and painting are two means and autonomous languages but in Angela Fagu’s work are able to integrate and overlap themselves in a single vision, where the creative vis is always regulated and harmonized by the delicacy of spirit.
