Notes

Vittorio Accornero Tomaso -- Illustrazione tempera su cartone cm 30x24. Firmata in cartiglio. Dopo aver preso parte come aviatore alla Prima Guerra Mondiale, si dedica all'illustrazione con lo pseudonimo di Max Ninon. Con la moglie Edina Altara realizza illustrazioni per "Il Giornalino della Domenica", "Ardita", "La Lettura". Nel 1925 ottiene la medaglia d'oro per i suoi pochoir alla prima esposizione internazionale di arti decorative ed industriali di Parigi. Nella seconda metà degli anni '20 è a New York, dove lavora come scenografo. Dal 1934 risiede a Milano, dedicandosi all'illustrazione di libri per ragazzi, con oltre 60 opere per i principali editori. Negli anni '40 scrive e illustra per Mondadori i libri di Tomaso, un cagnolino trovatello ed occhialuto adottato da una famiglia di gatti. La sua pittura è costantemente influenzata dal teatro: piccoli e rifiniti personaggi circondati da quinte, tendoni, scenografie. Negli anni la sua pittura evolve verso l'iper-realismo, con personali in Italia e all'estero. Si dedica infine al design di moda, realizzando per Gucci oltre80 foulard (tra i quali il celeberrimo Flora, disegnato nel 1966 per Grace Kelly).
