In , she published "Tempeste" Tempests , where she continued to pursue the theme of social injustice. In , she married industrialist Giovanni Garlanda, and by , they had two daughters. In , Negri separated from her husband, moving to Switzerland with her surviving daughter, Bianca.

The monkey sits facing the sun in a landscape painted from photographs taken by my father of the country surrounding his house, Shangri-La.

The canvas is rested on a small stand made by my father from scrap wood, which he used for the same purpose. The hand is mine that paints the image.
