A major figure of postwar European art and a binational resident of Argentina and Italy, Lucio Fontana (1899-1968) blurred numerous boundaries in his life and art, crossing borders both literally and figuratively. This volume takes a fresh look at the renowned artist whose simultaneous innovations in painting, drawing, ceramics, and sculpture, as well as his spatial explorations, pushed the painterly into the sculptural and redefined the relationship between the arts.

Evaluating Fontana's interest in synthesis and moving beyond his famous slashed canvases, this book reveals Fontana to be one of the first installation artists.
