Ceramica Bevilacqua is a family-run artisan workshop based in inland Sicily, Caltanissetta. Since 1997, artists Antonio and Giuseppe, who are also brothers, have sought inspiration in Sicilian majolica and the island’s traditional decorations. Yet, all their work is extremely recognisable and bears their personal touch. Amphorae, vases, plates and clocks are only some of the marvellous pieces produced. All the creations by the Bevilacqua brothers are dominated by bright yellow, intense blue, emerald green and deep black, representing the Sicilian sun, sea, hills and the lava on Mount Etna.
Enamel and oil, 60 x 151 x 68.2 cm The decorations of this refrigerator, dominated by tones of blue and red, are a tribute to the traditional painting of the Sicilian cart. The surface presents a series of chivalric scenes with portraits of paladins and episodes of combat. On the central panel, inside a lozenge-shaped frame embellished with daisy petals / slices of pizza, is the scene of Argante in battle. The top features a chubby face framed by colourful geometric motifs.
