Enrico Castellani, Dies at 87

Enrico Castellani, an Italian artist who was a prominent member of Europe’s postwar avant-garde, died on Dec. 1 at his home in Celleno, Italy, near Rome. He was 87. A spokesman for Lévy Gorvy, the gallery that represents his work in New York and London, said the cause was complications of a respiratory illness.

His longtime companion, Renata Wirtz, died in 2016. He is survived by a son from that relationship, Lorenzo; a daughter, Francesca Castellani, from an earlier relationship; two grandchildren; and one great-granddaughter.
