    boohoo No.

    Love his work - this is in the Tate - though it is actually one of a few versions. He did more sculpture but it got destroyed - which is a shame as it was all trying to capture an idea of movement.

    And his paintings are fab. I saw them at an exhibition at the Tate - I went a bit potty - lots of OMG it's that one. I've waited nearly 20 years to see those pieces... amazing!

    boohoo No.

    My favourite part of the Battle of San Romano painting is this bit. I've see the others. I like the funny little man painted in perspective at the bottom. I love the idea that all these artists were trying to figure out how to get painting done correctly.

    Bombergs Bathouse

    [​IMG]

    like blows me away - many have not heard of Bomberg sadly, but was pivotal in futurism and Vorticism - hes now got a semi perm exhibition at the Elephant, where he taught & founded the Borough group IIRC. Probably the "best" artist that Britian has produced in the past couple of hundred years

    Yes. The stillness of the glitter and mirrored ball is vibrant with movement that is not depicted but worked into them. To view them is to become involved in this inner process which is simultaneously one's own contemplation.
