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.

This is the best product for cleaning your technical pens. I also use it for cleaning my Waterman Fountain pens, and it works great!
- Professor in Somerset, NJ
I agree with the other 5-star reviews. Compact and sturdy. I use a waterbrush, not the included brush.
- Russell in Tupelo, MS
I have been using Pelikan opaque watercolors for 40 years. I love them. They last a long time. The colors are great. Also, with more pigment, you can achieve rich vibrant colors that don't fade. I don't put my finished pieces in the sun. And they don`t dry up like tube watercolors. I have given them as presents also.
