Description:
Umberto Boccioni (1882-1916) Figura signed 'Boccioni' (lower right) pencil on paper 4 3/8 x 6 in. (11 x 15.2 cm.) Executed circa 1911 Figura, dated circa 1911, is one of Umberto Boccioni\\\’s early futurist drawings. Here the typical features of dynamism are not fully visible yet; the present work instead shows a girl sleeping, an image that is very far from the ideals of movement and progress promoted in the Technical Manifesto of the Futurist painters, which the artist had signed just a year earlier, with fellow artists Balla, Carrà, Russolo and Severini. As Maurizio Calvesi wrote: \\\‘Boccioni had to balance the realistic element typical of the cubist\\\’s fragmentation with the explosive urge of his vital sentiment, a furious, aggressive one […] He found this balance in an almost obsessive emphasis on physicality.\\\’ (Maurizio Calvesi quoted in A. Palazzeschi, L\\\’opera complete di Boccioni, Milan, 1969, p. 12). In Figura, pure, delicate lines draw a human figure, possibly the artist\\\’s mother, pervaded with a lively calm that seems to describe the key, transitional moment Boccioni was undergoing in his artistic development at the time it was executed.

Coen, Umberto Boccioni, cat. of the exh. at Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 1988/1989 The aspiring artist\\\’s contact with the world of commercial art came very early. Severini and other sources indicate that the youth, arriving in Rome at the turn of the century, took drawing lessons from a painter named Mataloni who specialised in publicity posters. By 1904 the creation of such works constituted the young man\\\’s sole source of income. True to his personality, Boccioni caught something more in his assigned subjects than his employers may have been looking for, studying all the possibilities wherever they were to be found. He was a frequent visitor of the racetracks, where he made quick sketches of the jockeys (…..). In a letter to his mother and sister, written from Paris (April 17 1906), the youthful explorer of a vast and still unknown world wrote about how, in taking off for France, he felt freed from a great weight, the heaviest part of his burden being his work as a poster painter : \\\“(…) For two years now I no longer study because of those cursed posters…..\\\” Though he resented the time taken away from more serious work, the years of having to \\\“think big\\\” in designing advertisements deepened his capacity to organise the space of a composition and encouraged him to seek out ever more daring perspectives and angles(…..). This illustration and the others for the Automobile Club, presumably completed around 1904, are of considerable interest. They contain a series of motifs Boccioni would develop later and are extraordinary evidence of how early his imagination was caught by what, in mature years, he would think of as \\\“dynamism\\\”. The subject imposed by the sponsor was \\\“le derniere ecri\\\” at the moment (also a key topic for Futurism): the automobile, representing the New against the Old. The machine is represented in movement: whirlpools of arrow signs that sweep around the wheels to give the impression the tyres are revolving rapidly. The well-defined outlines of figures and objects seem to leap out from a uniform background. Boccioni would return to the theme of the automobile in a drawing for the cover of the weekly \\\“Avanti della Domenica\\\” (Rome 12/11/1905). There, a detail of the vehicle is isolated and the diagonal composition is exploited to convey the impression of motion even more effectively and intensely

Pre-Lot Text
The following four prints by Umberto Boccioni (1882-1916) offer an opportunity to acquire some very fine and important works created during the very brief period of the artist\’\’\’\’s printmaking activity, which lasted only approximately three years, from 1907-1910, until the artist became part of the Futurist movement. Fine early impressions of Boccioni\’\’\’\’s prints are exceptionally rare, and to find them in as good condition as the present examples is rarer still.
