Top Ten Paintings by Giacomo Balla

       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.
