He studied at the Brera Academy in the 1930s, where he was taught by renowned artists including painters Aldo Carpi and Pompeo Borra, and sculptors Francesco Messina and Marino Marini. He says that painting is an ‘elixir for long life’, and continues to paint and exhibit as a centenarian… He was on the fringes of the Corrente movement started by his friends and classmates in the 1930s to oppose the Novecento Italiano movement that was influenced by Italian Fascism. He was drafted by the Italian Army in 1939, completing tours of duty that until 1945 interrupted his artwork though still enabling him to attend several exhibitions, including the Mostra degli artisti in armi exhibit at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome… He became involved in the Italian figurative art movement of the mid 1900s. His growing stature as a painter in Italy led to exhibitions at increasingly prestigious events, such as the Venice Biennale and Rome Quadriennale. It ultimately led to Longaretti earning the ‘Chair of Painting’ and becoming the director of the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo in 1953, a position he held until retiring in 1978…” (Wikipedia, 2017) Items have some edgewear and a few markings throughout but all are between About very good and very good condition.
