PROVENANCE From the artist; to a private collection; by descent to the present owner. NOTES Enrico Prampolini, an outspoken member of the Futurist movement, was best known for his work in set design. He joined the Futurist movement in Rome in 1914, yet continued to alienate himself from its members through his controversial positions. In 1918 he developed an interest in photography and began to experiment with photocollage. In 1922 the American journal Broom reproduced one of his collages on its cover. He corresponded with Tristan Tzara and later became associated with Kert‚sz, Marc Vaux and Iwata Nakayama in Paris, where he shared a studio with Florence Henri. In the 1930s he continued his work with photocollage and created large scale panels intended for political propaganda and advertising.
