Gino Severini was a painter, designer and writer. He was one of the most important italian artists of the last century. In 1910, he became one of the leading members of the Futurist movement and signed their Technical Manifesto. Subsequently, closely linked to Synthetic Cubism, he regularly met fellow cubists such as Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso and other artists of the French avant-Garde including Modigliani, Juan Gris and Guillaume Apollinaire.
In 1921, Severini published his book 'Du Cubisme au Classicisme' in which he explained his theories about the rules of composition and proportion. He was an artistic genius who contributed to the development and the evolution of geometric painting.
His artworks can be found in the collections of the greatest museums of the world, such as:
MoMa, New York;
Guggenheim, New York;
Tate Modern, London and many more.
