Armando Cuniolo, born in Genoa in 1900, left a secure job as a civil servant (draftsman) in 1920, began attending courses at the local Academy of Fine Arts, obtaining various, important awards and refining those drawing skills he had already shown earlier. His debut took place in Genoa in 1930 and exhibited for the first time at the Valle Arte Gallery in 1932; the following year he was in Palazzo Rosso, where he obtained important acclaim from local critics. From 1933 to 1935 we find it in Switzerland; upon his return, he settled in Milan, while maintaining close contact with the Ligurian artistic environment and continuing to participate in Genoese exhibitions. Author of landscapes, figures, still lifes, he is known for his desire to experiment with new techniques attracted by twentieth-century painting. He passes from post-impressionism, to cubism, to futurism; he centralized production from the 1920s to the 1930s, when the “Novecento” movement, founded by Margherita Sarfatti, was born and progressed in Milan. Known his frequent depictions of dancers in movement, his measured adhesion to Cubism is manifested through the use of very bright colors. Arnando Cuniolo between 1945 and 1955 dedicated himself to the execution of sketches for printing on fabric, through the use of a personal technique, and in recent years to the execution of small tempera paintings depicting doves, a la Severini. His work as a scenographer also deserves a mention and for this reason he actively collaborates with a Hungarian company of theatrical magazines. He takes part in numerous personal exhibitions in important galleries in Milan, Genoa, Rome, Venice, Turin, Bergamo, Brescia, Verona, etc. As part of the VII Quadrennial of Rome, his latest work "Festival alla Foce", Genoa 1955 was chosen for the G.A.M. From Rome. Works by him in the Public Galleries of Genoa, Mondovì and Aosta. Numerous awards received: Tende, Alberoni, Albano, Saint Vincent. An eclectic artist, a master in the art of drawing, he also demonstrated, through his works, a profound sensitivity and the desire to make the artistic ferments of the time his own.
