BORTULUCCE, Vanessa Beatriz. Reflexões sobre a formação da poética de Umberto Boccioni em "Beata solitudo - sola beatitudo". ARS (São Paulo) [online]. 2008, vol.6, n.12, pp.115-127. ISSN 1678-5320.

In the year of 1908, Umberto Boccioni (1882-1916), artist of the Italian Futurism, produced a second version of the drawing "Beata solitudo - Sola beatitudo", a work which expresses the contrast between the ancient and the modern values, experienced by the artist in his first years living in Milan. This article intends to study the main aesthetical influences which have guided Boccioni in this work, one of the most important ones in his pre-futurist aesthetics, as well as to demonstrate how this work anticipates the main elements of his futurist art.

Keywords : Umberto Boccioni; modern art; Futurism; drawing.
