(b Quargnento, Piedmont, 11 Feb. 1881; d Milan, 13 Apr. 1966). Italian painter and writer on art, a prominent figure in both Futurism and Metaphysical Painting. He joined the Futurists in 1909, and visits to Paris in 1911 and 1912 introduced Cubist influence into his work. In his best-known painting, The Funeral of the Anarchist Galli (1911, MoMA, New York), for example, he combined the dynamism typical of Futurism with a sense of Cubist structural severity.
