LOOKING FOR HEMINGWAY by Franco Azzinari

Scollay Square Gallery and the Mayor's Gallery inside Boston City Hall will host Italian artist Franco Azzinari's exhibit, Looking for Hemingway, for more than a month. This exhibit will include ten paintings and drawings along with two video presentations.  

 

The project Looking for Hemingway was born in 2000 during a visit to Cojimar (Cuba) where Azzinari met Gregorio Fuentes, a friend and travel companion of the celebrated writer. Through Fuentes' stories, the artist falls in love with Hemingway's life and during the course of his travels to Cuba, Franco Azzinari creates a series of drawings and paintings, depicting in large part Cojimar, and friends Gregorio Fuentes, Carnero Osvaldo and Pedro,  the landscapes and fishermen of the village. These experiences inspired Hemingway to write his novel, The Old Man and the Sea, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 and the Nobel Prize in literature in 1954.  

 

Among the diverse works on display are paintings and drawings reflecting the writer's trips to Kenya, during which the Masai populations were depicted - including women, children and warriors - Debba, the African woman Hemingway loved, and the African savannah environment with its own fauna.  

 

Two videos show Azzinari's intent to record the fishermen of Cojimar as he talks to them about Hemingway and the typical dance of the Masai people, and the animals native to the area.


For more information on the artistic life and the works of Azzinari, visit the web site, www.francoazzinari.it
