Giacomo Balla - Dynamism of a Dog on a Leash (1912) | Albright Knox art Gallery (Buffalo) A lady is walking a dog; a widow and her pet. The lady has roughly 15 feet, variably solid and see-through. The dog has eight countable tails, while its legs are lost in flurry of blurry overlays. Four swinging leads go between them.
El futurismo es una corriente artística surgida en Italia en 1901 a raíz del manifiesto futurista publicado por Marinetti. Este movimiento buscaba romper con la tradición y los signos convencionales de la historia del arte intentando con ello ensalzar la vida contemporánea. Consideraba como elementos principales la poesía, la adoración a la maquina y la velocidad. La realidad se abstrae hasta representarse mediante figuras geométricas.
Blue Dancer, 1912. The dance was one of Gino Severini's favourite themes, and was emotively tied to the café life in Paris. Severini painted the Blue dancer together with The White Dancer in the second quarter of 1912. Also 1912 was the year Severini came to terms with the Cubism of his friends Pablo Picasso and Braque, using it specifically as a means of expressing movements, which was his chief concern at the time.
