Giacomo Balla, an Italian painter, was an early advocate of Futurism, and his geometric artwork often explored movement and light. Balla first developed an interest in visual art while working in a lithograph printing shop at the age of nine. The upcoming Modern & Contemporary Art Auction, presented by Finarte, will feature an etching and aquatint titled Affetti by Balla. The offered portrait shows the influence of the Italian Divisionists on the artist. Another highlight is a Cossack color screenprint titled Bather by Giorgio de Chirico. The painting uses pastel colors and curves to deliver the sensation of the shown woman’s skin.
Alighiero Fabrizio Boetti was known for his works combining different cultures and disciplines. Also known as Alighiero e Boetti, his vision brought together contrasting elements, including embroidery and geography. Classificazione dei Mille fiumi Piu lunghi del mondo, meaning Classification of the Thousand Longest Rivers in the World, is a substantial artwork by Boetti available in this auction. He lists the thousand longest rivers in the world on a color screenprint, with block letters spelling the names of the rivers placed in descending order of their lengths. The auction also offers a lithograph by Maria Lai and Gianfranco Baruchello. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
