Umberto Boccioni (1882-1918) together with Tommaso Marinetti are the main representatives of Italian futurism. In February 1910 he published the prominent "Manifesto of Futurist Painting", in which he pursued artists to give up the outdated and traditional norms. They should have dedicated themselves to a new art, which corresponded to the mechanization of the future. Posthumously Boccioni's works were presented documenta I-III.

Boccioni's works are characterized by a dramatically tense fragmentation of surfaces. Following the scientific principles of light he thought that not only moving, but also static bodies can produce an equally dynamic effect - because basically everything is subject to the dynamics of the universe.

The sculpture "Forme della Uniche Continuitae Nello Spazio" ("Unique Forms of Continuity in Space") was a milestone of modern art and is considered one of the masterpieces in the collection at the MoMA, New York. Boccioni's sculpture is also displayed on the present Italian 20 Century Masterpieces

Graphic or sculpture edition that was initiated by ars mundi and is available only at ars mundi or at distribution partner licensed by ars mundi.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.

Collective term for all casting processes that ars mundi carries out with the help of specialized art foundries.

Cast stone
Equivalent of artificial marble, with the difference that the substitute stone in powder form is used instead of marble powder.

Cold cast bronze
Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.

ARA wooden copy
In order to guarantee absolute fidelity to the original, an artificially manufactured imitation wood is used as a base material which has typical wood characteristics: density, workability, color and surface structure.

Ceramic casting
As a rule castable clay is used in ceramic casting, which then is fired and possibly glazed. Plaster molds are often used instead of the usual rubber molds in ceramic casting and in porcelain production.

Bronze casting
In this case, the thousand-year-old lost-wax technique is used. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.
