Leonardo Cremonini (1925- 2010) was an Italian visual artist. As abstraction and conceptual art gained prominence in the 20th century, Cremonini seemed to be marginalized. But a recent resurgence in figurative art suggest a newfound appreciation for the artist. Among his admirers was fellow artist Francis Bacon, who suggested that his friend poet W.H. Auden write about him. William Ruben, the former director of the MoMA, praised Cremonini by saying that his work embodies a spirit of timeless monumentality. He has been awarded the Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres in France, member of the Royal Academy of Belgium, member of the San Luca National Academy in Rome and of the “Accademia delle Arti e del Disegno” in Florence. He has also been awarded the Marzotto International Prize in 1969 and the Prize from the Italian President of the Republic in 1979. Leonardo Cremonini has 370 available auction results.
