Giacomo Balla - velocità d'automobile

Velocity of an automobile(1913)

This is the work of futuristic artist Giacomo Balla(1871-1958). He portrayed movement, light, sound in a single painting. I find his work to be pretty amazing, especially because of the time he created it in. The angles, the darkness of it and how contrasting the light with that darkness, are wonderful. But most of all, you can really see the movement, the light.. the sound perhaps not so much. But it's still very impressive, don't you think?

What comes to your mind when seeing it?
