Carlo Battaglia (1933 – 2005) was born in La Maddalena (Sassari), Sardinia.

He studied stage design at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Rome, graduating in 1957 with a final thesis on Jackson Pollock. In 1962, thanks to a grant, he moved to Paris. In 1967, he lived for several months in New York, where he established friendships with Reinhardt, Motherwell and Rothko.

In 1970, he was invited to the 35th Venice Biennale, exhibiting the Maree for the first time, which introduced a theme that preoccupied him throughout his life. Carlo Battaglia’s most important exhibitions include retrospectives at the Palazzo Grassi, in Venice in 1967, the Palazzo di Diamanti in Ferrara in 1976 and the Kunsthalle in Düsseldorf in 1978.

He also participated in a number of group shows of Italian contemporary art including the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington in 1974, the Boymans Museum in Rotterdam in 1977 and the Howard Gallery in London. In 1978 and 1980, he participated in the 40th and the 43rd Venice Biennale. From 1980 on, he increasingly isolated himself and painted in total solitude.

Carlo Battaglia died on the morning of January 17, 2005.
