Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Giacomo Balla was born in Turin, Italy in 1871, the son of a photographer.  He began working as a lithographer, but moved to Rome in 1893 where he made his living as an artist.  He gained some reputation at the beginning of the 20th century as a painter of the Divisionist style.  In 1910, at considerable personal sacrifice, Balla associated himself with the Futurist movement.  His painting "Lampe Electrique" was inspired by the first electric lighting in the streets of Rom (showing 500 of 2378 characters).
