The Dance of the Pan Pan at the Monico
Severini was one of the main figures in Futurism, both in terms of output and theory. Often the focus of his paintings was dancers, but there was not much formulation in their depiction, which has left us with a variety of wonderfully amusing depictions. And Severini worked in a number of styles, including in Pointillism, featured here. I can't seem to express my enthusiasm for Severini well enough, and I don't know how to remedy the fault. What can I say about him to do his art justice? Perhaps I should say that when I look at his works I most acutely feel the world of Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms; but is that enough?
