Fortunato Depero

The Italian Futurist Fortunato Depero (1892-1960) tends to be overlooked these days for some reason, which is a shame because the best of his work easily holds its own against that of Boccioni or Balla. He was also one of the most versatile talents to emerge from the movement, turning his hand to painting, collage, graphic design, sculpture, tapestry, theatre design and toy-making. The images above are from Fortunato Depero: Carnival of Colour by Roberta Cremoncini.

Of course, I'm not the first person from around these parts to take an interest in this stuff...
