Umberto Boccioni was perhaps the most versatile and impassioned of the Futurists and his masterwork, Materia, a huge canvas painted during July and August of 1912, depicts the artist’s mother seated on the balcony of her apartment at Via Adige, 23, in Milan. ‘Boccioni’s Materia – A Futurist Masterpiece and the European Avant-garde’ is organized around a series of themes including the artist’s evolution from Divisionism to Futurism, the exchanges between Cubism and Futurism, and the relationship between Boccioni’s painting and sculpture. Through an exploration of related paintings by Boccioni, as well as works by his counterparts within the greater European sphere, from Picasso to Duchamp, this exhibition and catalogue demonstrate the pivotal role Boccioni played within the history of Modernism, broadening the current perspective on the artist and, by extension, the Italian Futurism movement. This publication includes drawings, sculptures, period photographs, and archival documentation, providing an unprecedented understanding of Boccioni’s working process, and the interconnected relationships between the works he executed in diverse media. A series of scholarly essays completes the volume.
