        Painter


      • Giacomo Balla painted subjects in the Roman Campagna and portraits. He was in Paris 1900-1901, and was strongly influenced by Divisionism (already experienced in Rome). In 1910 he signed the Futurist Manifesto, and exhibited with the group from 1912, painting the only amusing picture produced by that dreary movement - the Dog on a Leash - before returning to a more traditional use of a free Divisionist technique for subjects of social comment.

        There are works from his Futurist phase in London (Tate) and New York (M ofMA), and of his Divisionist style in Rome (Gall. Naz. d'Arte Mod.).
