Umberto Boccioni: "Simultaneous Visions". Umberto Boccioni was an influential Italian painter and sculptor. He helped shape the revolutionary aesthetic of the Futurism movement as one of its principal figures.
Dynamism of a soccer/football player, 1913, by Boccioni. A modern art movement originating among Italian artists in 1909, when Filippo Marinetti's first manifesto of futurism appeared, until the end of World War I. Futurist painting and sculpture were especially concerned with expressing movement and the dynamics of natural and man-made forms.
Giacomo Balla (1871–1958) was an Italian composer and painter. Around 1902, he taught Divisionist techniques to Umberto Boccioni and Gino Severini Influenced by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, Giacomo Balla adopted the Futurism style, creating a pictorial depiction of light, movement and speed. He was signatory to the Futurist Manifesto in 1910, and began designing and painting Futurist furniture, also created Futurist "antineutral" clothing.
Tullio Crali (1910-2000) was an Italian artist associated with Futurism. A self-taught painter, he was a late adherent to the movement, not joining until 1929. He is noted for realistic paintings that combine "speed, aerial mechanisation and the mechanics of aerial warfare", though in a long career he painted in other styles as well.
