"Numbers in Love," 1924, Giacomo Balla (1871-1958) was one of the founding members of the first wave of Futurist painters. By 1914 he was advocating a Futurist lifestyle - naming his 2daughters Propeller and Light.  Gradually giving more value to geometric forms, his style regularly alternated between abstract machine-like constructions and figurative representations.
