Felice Casorati

Casorati, Felice (fālēˈchā käsōräˈtē) [key], 1886–1963, Italian painter. Influenced by Beardsley and other English engravers, Casorati, together with Carrà, was involved in the symbolist movement. He was instrumental in the formation of the metaphysical school. An ironic tone and cool refinement are characteristic of his works (e.g., Still Life, c.1942–43; National Gall. of Modern Art, Rome).
