The works of Piero Sadun can be divided into three periods
The first period
“Once the war was over, once he came back from the Arezzo mountains where he fought in the Resistance, he began a painting made of color, almost broken by sobs, cut by slivers of light that frayed the shapes and spread the colors”. (C.Brandi)
The second period
“Sadun went through a Cubist period, starting from a dark palette, destructuring yet always leaving something – almost a flash – of the subject he was moving from. But in his way of attacking the canvas there always was, as there was before and there will be later, a gentleness, a delicate choice, the taste for a painting that, no matter how pleasant it looked, aimed to be painting for painting’s sake””. (C.Brandi)
The third period
“Meanwhile, the journey toward abstractism was made without sharp cuts, really in force of an ever growing and exclusive emergency of the color: not any longer a broken, yelling color ŕ la Soutine, but rather ample lays that would eventually lead to these later works, so internally moved, with minimal and small variations, almost like a mosaic whose unity of tone absorbs the fragmentation of the single pieces”. (C.Brandi)
