Giacomo Balla • ((1871-1958) • The Italian artist, GiacomoBalla, was one of the founders of Futurism • Futurism was very fond of machines and things that moved, such as cars. • The racing car was very important during this movement, and the futurists’ early pictures showed things moving. • In his work Girl Running on the Balcony, Balla was trying to show movement by showing the girl’s legs running. • Other works such as Dog on a Leash, showed speed by putting a number of images on top of one another. • After futurism, cinematography (the cinema) came to take its place by showing pictures that really moved. • Futurism came to an end with the First World War.
