Message: Umberto Boccioni
He is one of the eminent creators of the Futurism. He makes up forms by means of the planes which permeate one through another. The result is composing the picture in correspondence of the objects' reaction from the light's affection. During the classes coming up to his achievements and the mastery the helpful sites should be:,,,,boccioni_umberto,haslo.html

Message: I had already seen some of Boccioni’s sculptures and paintings but still I have to confess that I am not very familiar with his artwork. When I saw the reproductions ”The Effect of Sunlight” and “The Mother”, posted on, they impressed me so deeply with the artistry of implementation and the psychological presence of model, that I have absolutely no doubt they would produce the same effect on my students. I think though that the biographical data could have been more elaborate.
