Giacomo Balla (July 18, 1871 – March 1, 1958)

Street Light

I'm a great fan of Futurism and Balla was one of the movement's most important artists. Two of the paintings here illustrate the striving, within the Futurist movement, towards the visualization of motion, whether it be centered on the walking of a dog or on the shooting light of a street lamp. Besides progressing the Futurist movement, I've included several of Balla's wonderful Post-Impressionist pieces.

The World's Fair at Night (Luna Park)

Dynamism of a Dog on a Leash
