For sale here is a RARE vintage 1950s signed handmade copper and silver enamel modernist figural artwork on patinated steel backplate by Bianca Tuninetto of the Studio del Campo in Turin Italy. Tuninetto was one of the four founding members of the Studio del Campo, and this is a very rare early one of a kind hand-signed artwork by her. This, and the one other I have by her, are the only examples from the Studio del Campo (that I've seen) that are hand-signed, all others have had impressed marks (marks stamped into the metal). Here's a short history of the Studio del Campo of Turin, Italy...
‘Studio Del Campo di Torino’ (1956-1998), a common name by which the artisan-artists Virgilio Bari, Lidya Lanfranconi, Bianca Tuninetto and Euclide Chiambretti (2012) sign their works. They collaborated with Sestante gallery in Milan. Their works were characterized by the extreme precision of the finish and the use of silver leaf under glazes, as well as the search for new designs and new shapes. Always able to design their own works, they agreed to work only for prestigious designers such as Gio Ponti and the architects Toni Cordero and Ettore Sottsas. Virgilio Bari is also a fairly good painter and sculptor.
In making this artwork, fine silver is leafed over the copper then the artwork is enameled with various colors as shown. The enamel area measures 4" square, the larger backplate measures 8" square. Signed at the bottom front as shown. Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear as shown - please view the photos and read the description in full and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
