Umberto Boccioni




 

Umberto Boccioni

(b Reggio Calabria, 19 Oct 1882; d Sorte, Verona, 17 Aug 1916).

Italian sculptor, painter, printmaker and writer. As one of the principal figures of FUTURISM, he helped shape the movement’s revolutionary aesthetic as a theorist as well as through his art. In spite of the brevity of his life, his concern with dynamism of form and with the breakdown of solid mass in his sculpture continued to influence other artists long after his death.
