painter, a founder of Futurism; one of the
signatories of the Futurist Manifesto (1910). On
a visit to Paris (1900) he was strongly affected
by the Impressionist and Divisionist painters.
B.'s Dog on a Leash (1912), as an attempt to
present motion by superimposing several images,
is a logical exposition of Futurism; but his
pictures developed towards abstract art,
increasingly resolving into abstract lines of
movement and force.
