Biography

Amadeu Luciano Lorenzato
(1900 - 1995, Belo Horizonte | MG)

He is considered one of the most important personalities of the visual arts in the state of Minas Gerais.

Painter and sculptor. He began working as a painter's helper in 1910, practicing the craft until 1920, when he moves with his family to Arsiero (Italy), where he works as a wall painter in the reconstruction of the city. In 1925, he enrolled at the Reale Accademia delle Arti in Vicenza. The following year, he moved to Rome, where he spent two years in the company of the Dutch painter and poster artist Cornelius Keesman, with whom he designs on the weekends. In 1928, both decided to travel by bicycle to Eastern Europe, passing through Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria and Turkey. After the trip in 1930, the artist separates from Cornelius and moves to Paris, where he works in the assembly of the pavilions of the International Colonial Exhibition. A year later, he returns to Italy where he stays until April of 1948, when he returns to Brazil. He works in 1949 to set up stands for the Exhibition of Industry and Commerce, held at the Hotel Quitandinha in Petrópolis, then moves with his family to Belo Horizonte and works as a wall painter until 1956. Restricted to work due to an accident, he is fully dedicated to painting. In the mid-1960s, he presented some works to the critic Sérgio Maldonado, who in turn introduced him to Palhano Júnior, the organizer of the first individual exhibition of his works, held in 1967.
