Emilio Greco (Catania 1913 Roma 1994) is considered one of the most important artist of the 1900s. After a childhood spent in Catania, in 1933 he visited Rome for the first time and he remained impressed  by the Trono Ludovisi in the Terme Museum. This gave way to the beginning of his artistic production, exhibiting his first paintings and sculptures, which gained success and favorable impression from the critics. Among his works, we remember the gate of the cathedral of Orvieto, the monument in honour of Pope John XXIII and the monument of Pinocchio.

In his artistic production, the female figure has always had a leading role. For the artist, the woman is seen as an idol and he dedicates to her the fine marks along with the delicate intensity of the shadows, at Catania, in Piazza San Francesco d’Assisi, in the same building ( palazzo Gravina-Cruyllas) where the Bellini Museum is located, we can find the museum dedicated to Emilio Greco.

There, we can find a great part of his graphic production, we can find works from lithographs to water-based paintings, all belonging to the years from 1969 to 1989. Very important are the 25 paintings entitled “ Commiati”, pervaded with intense eroticism.
