Dynamism of a Dog on a Leash - Balla

We just learned about the painting Elegant Ball, Dance in the Country by Marie Laurencin.

Another famous work of art is the painting Dynamism of a Dog on a Leash by Italian artist Giacomo Balla in 1912.

This artist was famous for helping come up with the kind of art known as Futurism.
During the time of his paintings, there were many great inventions like the car and the airplane, and people really liked new fast and exciting things.

In Futurist paintings, the artists tried to make it look like things were moving fast.
