    Fontana executed this work following ‘il miracolo economico’ in the 1950’s . Italy was booming financially, and culturally. The present masterwork is a marriage of avant-garde and ultra-baroque aesthetics. The decision to violently viscerally puncture the canvas had its basis in the artist’s belief that making a hole was a radical gesture that broke the space of the picture. While the paint was still wet, Fontana used a sharp tool to gouge the piece. He then clawed at the canvas, poking fingers and even a while hand through the punctures in order to enlarge them to a desired size. He took great pleasure in the paint that encrusted around the holes during this process and often added to it to create projecting mounds that complicate the work’s topography.
    This egg-shaped canvas, is slightly taller than the artist himself, required special made-to-measure stretchers.
    Fontana traced over the stretcher bar for a single, fine line that would circumscribe the egg rendering the work wholly self-contained.
