Unique Forms of Continuity in Space



Unique Forms of Continuity in Space

Talk by Rosalind McKever

Umberto Boccioni's 1913 sculpture Unique Forms of Continuity in Space is one of the most iconic artworks of the twentieth century. The fame of this Futurist masterpiece within Italy, where it appears on the 20-cent coin, has spread worldwide thanks to bronze casts in museums from Tate Modern to the Museum of Modern Art. This talk tells the remarkable story of who saved Boccioni’s original plaster when most of his sculptures were destroyed after his death, how it came to be in Brazil, and why an artist who argued against traditional materials, became internationally famous for a sculpture in bronze.
