We present the most important work of the 77x77cm oils that Giacomo Balla made in his house in via Oslavia, in Rome, which were placed to cover the heating pipes that were in the entrance.
In this futuristically stylized work, his name appears as a sort of autograph.
The shapes are characteristic of the motifs of those years.
It has been exhibited in Italy and abroad countless times.
Naturally the work is available in our gallery and will be one of the many very important works that will be present in the exhibition dedicated to Giacomo Balla scheduled for 2021.
