       Giacomo Balla was born in Turin on July 18, 1871 as the son of an industrial chemist. As a child he studied music. By age twenty his interest in art was such that he decided to study painting at local academies and exhibited several of his early works. Following academic studies at the University of Turin, Balla moved to Rome in 1895 where he met and married Elisa Marcucci. For several years he worked in Rome as an illustrator and caricaturist as well as doing portraiture. In 1899 his work was shown at the Venice Biennale and in the ensuing years his art was on display at major Italian exhibitions in Rome and Venice, in Munich, Berlin and Düsseldorf in Germany as well as at the Salon d’Automne in Paris and at galleries in Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

       Liubov Sergeyevna Popova was born April 24, 1889 near Moscow. She grew up in an enlightened merchant family with a strong interest in art, especially Italian Renaissance painting. At eleven years old she began art lessons at home and in 1907 she studied art with S. Zhukovskiy. Then in 1908 – 1909 she attended the art school of Konstantin Yuonand Ivan Dudin. Popova traveled widely to investigate and learn from diverse styles of painting, but it was the ancient Russian Icons and 15th and 16th century Italian painters, Giotto and others which at first interested her the most.

Umberto Boccioni1

        Umberto Boccioni was born on October 19, 1882 in Reggio Calabria. He studied art through the Scuola Libera del Nudo at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Rome, beginning in 1901. He also studied design with a sign painter in Rome. In 1902, Boccioni studied Impressionist and Post-Impressionist styles in Paris. During later 1906 and early 1907, he took drawing classes at the Accademia di Belle Arti. In 1901, Boccioni first visited the Famiglia Artistica, a society for artists in Milan. There he became acquainted with fellow Futurists including the famous poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. The two would later join with others in writing manifestos on Futurism.
