A donation for the anthological exhibition of the painter held in 1973 in Palermo, the work dates from the 1970s when Consagra had achieved his full artistic maturity. He had already gone through Expressionism during the 1940s and had learned the languages of the Avant-garde movements, from cubism and futurism to nonfigurative art. The work, made of Masonite, a material made of pressed wood fibres, It bears testimony to the tight connection between plastic design and colour.
