General description from The Metropolitan Museum of Art website (© Copyright - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

Boccioni was a member of the Futurists, a group of Italian artists who announced their existence in 1909 with a manifesto published on the front page of the French paper, Le Figaro. The group called for the abandonment of the past in favor of modern life and aimed to represent the metropolis in "multicolored and polyphonic tidal waves of revolution." Canvases such as The Street Pavers offered Boccioni the opportunity to radically transform a scene of backbreaking work into a celebration of the powerful form of the modern laborer. Through his inventive use of pulsating color and rhythmic brushwork, the artist activated the surface of the canvas, making the faceless workers almost indistinguishable from their urban setting.

Select a art print material variant

We offer a range of different sizes and materials for every product. Therefore, we allow you to choose among the following options:

  • Print on acrylic glass: An print on acrylic glass, which is sometimes described as a plexiglass print, makes the original into home décor. In addition, it makes a great alternative to dibond or canvas prints. The major advantage of a plexiglass fine art print is that contrasts and details will be more visible due to the precise tonal gradation. The acrylic glass protects your chosen art replica against sunlight and external influences for many decades.
  • The poster print on canvas material: A poster is a UV printed flat canvas with a slightly roughened texture on the surface, which reminds the original version of the work of art. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the poster print we add a white margin of something between 2-6cm around the painting to facilitate the framing.
  • Aluminium dibond print: An Aluminium Dibond print is a print with an impressive effect of depth. A direct Aluminium Dibond Print is the ideal introduction to fine reproductions on aluminum. For your Direct Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print your work of art right onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum composite. The colors of the print are bright and luminous, the fine details appear very clear, and you can really perceive a matte appearance of the print.
  • Canvas print: The printed canvas mounted on a wood stretcher frame. The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which implies that it is quite simple to hang up your Canvas print without the use of extra wall-mounts. A canvas print is suited for all types of walls.
