Umberto Boccioni


Italian artist, a painter, sculptor and writer who helped shape the revolutionary aesthetic of the Futurism movement as one of its principal figures.

From the time of his youth, his passion was for literature and art, in spite of his father's disapproval. He left home for Rome where, between 1898 and 1902, he worked in the studio of the painter Giacomo Balla. In 1902 he went to Paris to study impressionism and then to St. Petersburg where he taught painting. All of the works that he completed while in Russia were later lost.

Between 1904 and 1906, Boccioni worked between Paris and Venice. After a period of squalid misery, suffering in Milan, he became acquainted with the avant-garde futurist Marinetti, and within three months they founded the Futurist Movement together. On fire, they released the First Manifesto of the Futurist on 11 February 1910 with Russolo, Balla, Severini and Carra joining them. In February 1912, they inaugurated the first Parisian Futurist Exposition along with Marinetti.

As World War I loomed, Boccioni joined the army and on 16 August 1916, in the village of Sorte, he fell from a horse and hit his head, dying of his injuries the next dawn.
