Research: Look at more recent figure sculptures

For this exercise I was fortunate that Boccioni’s Unique Forms of Continuity in Space was on display at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, being on loan for a limited period.  I learnt a lot more from being able to see it and examine it closely’ far more than would have been possible from a photograph in a book. Being able to see the sculpture made me realize that it was all about portraying movement in a 3D object – something you don’t appreciate with a two dimensional photo of a sculpture.

My notes on the sculpture are here: Boccioni
