Giacomo Balla
Red Floral Patterns - Temperas on Wood by Giacomo Balla - 1930s




The 'Red Floral Pattern' by Giacomo Balla (1871-1958), with a floral inner geometric pattern in red on white background (recto) and geometric red diamonds (verso), realized in the 1930s. Tempera on wood, aluminium structure and plastic base, 21 x 11 cm (23 x 11 cm with the base; 7,7 x 7,7 cm board) Giacomo Balla, (1871, Turin - 1958, Rome), Italian artist and founding member of the Futurist movement. A self-taught artist, he studied at the Accademia Albertina in Turin and moved to Rome in 1895. In 1900 he lived for a few months in Paris, where he visited the Exposition Universelle. He was impressed by life in the great metropolis and studied the Neo-Impressionist paintings of Georges Seurat, Paul Signac and Henri-Edmond Cross. On returning to Rome, he spread the Divisionist technique among young artists such as Umberto Boccioni, Gino Severini and Mario Sironi. Unlike most Futurists, Balla was a lyrical artist, unconcerned with modern machines or violence. Balla conveys a sense of speed and urgency that puts his artworks in line with Futurism’s fascination with the energy of modern life. This artwork is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any artwork in Italy created over 50 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price.
