Happy Belated Birthday, Umberto Boccioni
“The sixteen people around you in a rolling motor bus are in turn and at the same time one, ten, four, three; they are motionless and they change places; they come and go, bound into the street, are suddenly swallowed up by the sunshine, then come back and sit before you, like persistent symbols of universal vibration.”
Umberto Boccioni October 19, 1882 – 17 August 17, 1916
Italian painter and sculptor who was a strong influence in the Futurism movement. The Museum of Modern Art held a major retrospective in 1988.
