Umberto Boccioni

Umberto Boccioni

(1882 - 1916)
Born: Reggio di Calabria, Italy
Style: Futurism
Famous Works:
  • Head + Light + Surroundings (1912)
  • Continuous Forms in Space (1913)
  • Dynamism of a Cyclist (1913)
Umberto Boccioni believed strongly in the Futurist philosophy, co-signing ‘The Manifesto of the Futurist Painters’ in 1910. Boccioni formally denounced the traditional and customary philosophies of art making and instead, like many of the other members of the Futurist movement, looked to the rationalism of science and technology to inform his work. Boccioni recommended a near complete break with tradition and was an extreme advocate of the Machine Age, believing it to be a step towards the advancement of Italy. Painting was not Boccioni's sole medium; the artist also spent a considerable amount of time sculpting. He represented themes of the city earlier in his work, and subsequently used his work to express a social commentary. Boccioni aimed to capture multiple moments in a single two or three-dimensional venue, always stressing the synthesis of space and motion. In addition, it was of utmost importance to Boccioni to have the human element of emotion present in his work. In this way, the artist viewed objects as possessing a spiritual and emotional aspect in the way that they interact with space. While serving in the Italian Army during the First World War, Boccioni tragically died from injuries that he sustained after being thrown from his horse and subsequently trampled.

I'm loving this work desk/station, and I put it together in no time at all. The station is moveable; around the room or from room to room. The casters make it easy. That said, I have a laminate floor, and have to have the casters braced against something to stop them from rolling away with the station. If you have the same problem, you might try using the included stationary feet. Lowering the angle of the top might catch a finger if you're not aware. The drawers are lightweight and small, but nice to have at your fingertips. The side trays are molded plastic. Pencil sized holes work great for differing sizes of pencils, brushes and grease pencils. I used it as a light table with a lamp under the station.It worked great. There is a large metal "pencil tray". It's handy, but it will remind you that you should not lean on the top.

I'm going to go ahead and give this product 5-Stars, even though it's not what I was looking for in a pastel paper. I'm into photo-realism and fine details ,and there is too much texture for that, even after blending. The quality is right up there, and there is plenty of tooth as I did do some practicing on a sheet. I'm sure I'll find a use for it. It's just too nice to return.

I really like the frame. It's sturdy and well made. In the one I've opened, there's a little imperfection in the glass that's not noticeable if it's set at the bottom (horizontal) side of the frame. It showed a plot more at the top.The mat is off white. I was expecting white. I can still use it, though. For the price, it can't be beat.
