Painted in around 1929, this is a vivacious and colourful prefiguration of Balla’s prominent twenties abstract works, a symmetrical arrangement of interlocked shapes and plastic experimentation in line with Futurist ideology. The twenties mark the artist’s interest in rich, decorative schemes for interior decorations, furniture, and clothing as a way to integrate his artistic credo and the idea of abstract chromatic decorativism into daily life.
