Seguri was an energetic and versatile artist, who became known in the second part of his life for works influenced by the Padania style and depicting bizarre creatures, or men and women sketched with Expressionist intensity. As a young painter he frequented the protagonists of the Scuola Romana and of Tuscan art, and references to these trends are visible in many of his paintings and sculptures. He was a true artist, and evolved continuously, finally creating refined and fantastical constructions in which imagination could move freely in scenes depicting the deep valley. The painting we are admiring was displayed in the 1950 Cremona Biennial, and it shows a beautiful half naked girl surrounded by vegetation. Her body is graceful but also nervous and expressive. The green she is immersed in seems to gather round to allow a short explosion of female vitality, adorned by purple stockings.
