Tullio Crali - Acrobazie in cielo - Aeropainting, a re-adjusted vision of landscape seen from an aeroplane in flight, was codified in 1929 in the manifesto Aeropittura futurista. During the 'thirties and 'forties it became one of the more dominate aspects of Futurism. The painter Tullio Crali was perhaps the most famous "Aeropainter", and although Italian futurism pretty much died with it's creator, F.T. Marinetti, he continued to paint them until he died in the 1980's.
Tullio Crali (1910- 2000) was an Italian artist associated with Futurism. A self-taught painter, he was a late adherent to the movement, not joining until 1929. He is noted for realistic paintings that combine "speed, aerial mechanisation and the mechanics of aerial warfare", though in a long career he painted in other styles as well.
