Andrea Ucini / “About Unknown Artist,” a novel by Elena Ferrantes

View Portfolio

Andrea Ucini created a new illustration for The Guardian Weekend on Elena Ferrantes’ novel, “About Unknown Artist.”

The best-selling Italian novelist behind the highly-acclaimed Neapolitan series writes a column for The Guardian Weekend. In it, she explores looking at paintings. Instead of concentrating on who created the work, she suggests simply looking at a painting can lead to a more aesthetically-pleasing experience.

Ucini’s open keyhole shines light on the viewer, illuminating a greater understanding and appreciation of the painting she stands before.
