This work by Mario Raciti also belongs to the series that the Master calls Gesti d'Ignoto. Mario Raciti made this cycle of works in the late 1950s when he was still undecided whether to pursue a career as a lawyer or a painter. In the case of this work Mario Raciti performs, on the canvas paper, a series of stains, brushstrokes and even fine lines as if they were of pencil. Mario Raciti uses very diluted colors ranging from blue to red and black on a white background just veiled in very soft blue.
