This acrylic on canvas was painted by Italian architect Aldo Rossi in 1977 while Rossi was creating one of his master architectural pieces “The Cemetery in Modena.” Aldo Rossi took inspiration for some of the bold brutalistic features of the Cemetery from the industrial buildings surrounding Modena. This 1977 painting is among other Modena factory paintings that Aldo Rossi painted and serve as a testament of how these industrial buildings informed Aldo Rossi’s own architectural style.

From the collection of John Kluge/Metromedia.
