Happy birthday to Italian Futurist painter Gino Severini (1883–1966). Italian Futurism celebrated the speed, fragmentation, and sensory overload of modern cities. This effervescent painting of a young hatmaker strolling in the street was included in the first Futurist exhibition in Paris, held in February 1912. It conveys a sense of whirling motion through a combination of shifting planes of color and repeated elements of the hatmaker’s figure. “La Modiste (The Milliner),” 1910–11, by Gino Severini (© Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York/SIAE, Rome)
