STIMA VALUE INDEX – MARIO SCHIFANO


Mario Schifano¬†(20 September 1934,¬†Khoms, Libya¬†‚Äď 26 January 1998,¬†Rome, Italy) was an Italian¬†painter¬†and¬†collagist¬†of the¬†Postmodern¬†tradition. He also achieved some renown as a¬†film-maker¬†and¬†rock musician.

He is considered to be one of the most significant and pre-eminent artists of Italian postmodernism. His work was exhibited in the famous 1962 “New Realists” show at the¬†Sidney Janis¬†Gallery with other young¬†Pop art¬†and¬†Nouveau r√©alisme¬†innovators, including¬†Andy Warhol¬†and¬†Roy Lichtenstein. He became part of the core group of artists comprising the “Scuola di Piazza del Popolo” alongside¬†Franco Angeli¬†and Tano Festa. Renowned as a prolific and exuberant artist, he nonetheless struggled with a lifelong drug habit that earned him the label¬†maledetto, or “cursed”.

Schifano had a relationship with Anita Pallenberg in 1963, and with Marianne Faithfull in 1969.

He had a connection to¬†The Rolling Stones¬†beyond his relationships with Pallenberg and Faithfull:¬†Keith Richards¬†and¬†Mick Jagger¬†gave cameo performances in a film he directed, `Umano non Umano’ (1968); and he was even the inspiration for a Rolling Stones song, `Monkey Man’, on their 1969 album `Let It Bleed’.
