As a member of the Italian Spazialismo movement, founded by Lucio Fontana and others in the 1940s, Tancredi’s abstract painting deals with the creation of space through painted signs. Tancredi also firmly believed that he was painting artistic equivalents of events or astronomical singularities in outer space. The work of this painter owed much both to his familiarity with Peggy Guggenheim’s collection of avant-garde art (Pollock above all) and to Guggenheim’s patronage, who exhibited and sold his work.
