Special Event at the Estorick Collection of

Modern Italian Art

On 17th May the IAS enjoyed a private viewing of the Giacomo Balla: Designing the Future exhibition as well as the opportunity to look round the Estorick's permanent collection. Giacomo Balla (1871-1958), a master of modern Italian art, was one of the five signatories of Futurism's initial painting manifestos and a pioneering figure of European Modernism. The speaker, Rosie Martyr, gave an excellent talk and gallery guide which was greatly appreciated by 55 IAS members and their guests. Images included Plasticity of Elements (Study for a Scarf), Design for a Fan and Atmospheric Dynamism and all the works were drawn from the Biagiotti Cigna Collection.
