Elasticity by Boccioni Umberto
"The dynamic movement of a horse and rider is captured in a mass of bright colors and swirling, fragmented forms. The man and animal appear machine-like as they speed through a landscape of factories and electricity pylons. A co-founder in 1910 of the Italian Futurist group, Boccioni was fascinated with the depiction motion through time and space. With great bravado, the Futurists rejected the convention of Western art since the Renaissance, instead of looking towards science, technology and the city for inspiration. With a pictorial style that owed a certain debt to Cubism, Boccioni aimed to present simultaneously the new impressions and sensations of the modern world. Boccioni was a sculptor as well as a painter. In line with the militarism of the Futurists, in 1915 Boccioni volunteered to fight in the first World War. He was killed falling a speeding horse. "
