Carlo Carrà

Italian painter, 1881-1966

Carrà was a leading figure of the Futurist movement that flourished in Italy during the beginning of the 20th century. In addition to his many paintings, he wrote a number of books concerning art. He taught for many years in the city of Milan. He is best known for his 1911 futurist work, The Funeral of the Anarchist Galli. Carrà was indeed an anarchist as a young man but, along with many other Futurists, later held more reactionary political views, becoming ultra-nationalist and irredentist before and during the war, as well as by Fascism after 1918.

Letter to „Bertocchi”, cancelling the plans for an article on his exhibition at the Biennale: „Caro Bertocchi, Credo […] inutile che Lei faccia l’articolo sulla mia mostra alla Biennale. È passato tanto tempo […]. Sarà per un'altra volta. – Si, il mio indirizzo è sempre “Via Pascoli 18”. La sua precedente lettera l’ho ricevuta mentre stavo per partire al mare, e avendola dimenticata a Milano non aveva il suo indirizzo; per cui mi fu impossibile risponderle. Saluti cordiali“. - In fine condition, with mild central vertical and horizontal folds, a noticeable crease above the signature, and other light scattered creases.
