The painter and graphic designer Giuseppe Capogrossi had initially studied law before he devoting himself to art and living in Paris from 1927-33. Back in Italy he created the Gruppe Romano (Roman Group). In 1937 he returned to Umbria, where he concentrated on painting rural and agricultural life. After World War II, he turned towards Neocubism and Abstract Painting and was one of the founders of the group Origine. Capogrossi developed his own imagery for his collages and reliefs with letter-similar characters and elements. In 1966 he worked as a teacher at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Naples. He took part in the Documenta I (1955) and II (1959). In 2012, he was honored by a retrospective at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venezia.
