Giuseppe Capogrossi (Rome 1900 – Rome 1972).
Capogrossi took part in the major exhibitions of the 1930s dedicated to Italian art, such as the 1933 Exposition des peintres romains in Paris and the 1935 Quadriennale in Rome, thanks to which he imposed himself on the critics as one of the protagonists of the renewal of Roman painting. In 1939, the Quadriennale dedicated a personal room to him.

His first abstractions date back to the post-war period and in 1949 they already expressed a well-articulated personal vocabulary of a post-Cubist matrix that formalised a sign language of comb-shaped matrices articulated with logic and freedom in his compositions and that brought him closer to Informalism. In 1951 with Mario Ballocco, Alberto Burri and Ettore Colla he founded the Gruppo Origine, with the intention of promoting the ideals of abstraction, including a simplification of expression.
