Neno Mori (Venice 03/11/1899 - 02/11/1968).
He completed the studies at the Institute of Art of Venice, where he completed his artistic formation with his friends: the group of painters as Eugenio Da Venezia, Seibezzi, Novati, e Varagnolo.
He participated to the exhibitions of Cŕ Pesaro from 1920 and he won prizes inside La Biennale di Venezia (1934, 1948, 1954).
The painting of Mori, as wrote Paolo Rizzi, has formed far from the languages innovations and the experimentations, leaving from two various sides that he meant to create: the study of the masters of the 1800's and the reality with the truth.
His essence of Venice “ …of the juices exquisitely of the late 1500's, in a direction that is represented by Tintoretto, Bassano…” and, on the other hand, making reference also to the tradition of Giorgione and Tiziano, adding togheter the instinct of the sign, the light.
Marco Novati wrote: "… i met Neno Mori in 1920. It’s more than 40 years.. And we were just good friends. We were a "clan" of some painters united with affection and sympathy. … ..
Already from that time noted in the first pictorial taste of Mori a vein of special colour. He decorated some pears, some houses, some clouds with color with a grace with a touch, full of charm. And I said: 'what hands and what eyes. "
Then he continued on his difficult and hard way, as all of us and with continuous benefits.
The last still life, the recent landscapes, flowers painted by him are excellent in all senses. I have a weakness for the color, for the style, for the "full" of his painting.
I believe that the modern Venetian painting, conducted by Mori and by few others friends of mine, is among the most interesting and solid ..."
