Franz Borghese was born in Rome on January 21, 1941 and completed his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts and Art School in Rome. Painter, engraver and sculptor, Borghese analyzes in his paintings the society and the crowd that surrounds him, taken with the brush dipped in sarcasm and irony, as well as in the chromatism of his palette. Franz Borghese's techniques embrace all the traditional ways of pictorial expression, with the addition of personal innovations and openings to sculpture and engraving. Borghese has always worked a great deal, including oil paints, tempera, ink, watercolors and mixed media, so much so that death caught him in his studio in Rome, while he was painting, on December 16, 2005. Famous already towards the end of the '60s, in 1971 he surprised the world of critics with a series of paintings on the theme of "Process to the Bourgeoisie" which automatically triggered the parallelism with George Grosz and Otto Dix. Honored as one of the most prominent figures of the Italian artistic scene, Borghese has been, and still is, the subject of numerous exhibitions at well-known public institutions, both in Italy and abroad. His works are located in important private collections, foundations and institutions. Borghese's works have been sold in important auctions and, thanks to the activity of Franz Borghese's archive, the quotations of the artist are still stable, as well as the interest reserved to him by public and critics. He died in Rome in 2005.
