 About the Book 

Gino Severini (1883-1966) was an artist member of the Italian Futurist group who in the years after 1910 showed new Futurist works in Paris and other major European cities, and in 1917 at Alfred Stieglitzs 291 gallery in New York.This enormouslyMoreGino Severini (1883-1966) was an artist member of the Italian Futurist group who in the years after 1910 showed new Futurist works in Paris and other major European cities, and in 1917 at Alfred Stieglitzs 291 gallery in New York.This enormously fertile period, and the lively theories and vivid works of art it produced, constitute the subject of this book. It describes the role of the commercial art gallery in the spread of Futurist ideas, and traces the development of Severinis theoretical position. It includes, in translation, documents concerning the Stieglitz exhibition of 1917, and 53 letters and postcards written by Severini between 1910 and 1915. His letters bring to life the world of art and ideas of the second decade of this century.
