Artist of the moment……..Gino Severini

 

 

Gino Severini was an Italian painter associated with the Cubist and Futurist movements. Gino Severini was born in Cortona, Italy in the year 1883. His father worked in the courts and his mother was a dress maker.

Below a montage of works by Gino Severini:

Severini studied in Rome at the Rome Fine Art Institute. After relocating to Paris, France in 1906 the artist fell in the love with the city and considered with Cortona (his birthplace) the artist’s two favorite cities.

Severini enjoyed painting the figure whilst in motion. Some favorite subjects of the artist included dancers and musicians.

One of his biggest influences was the artist Giocoma Balla, already profiled here.

Price range information: Works range from $5,000 to $750,000. The artist was a prolific printmaker.

Gino Severini passed away in 1966.

Severini had a great eye for composition. His Cubist and Futurist works showing the movement of human figure are fascinating for how many shapes they contain, whilst still showing a great sense of movement through out the picture.
