During your London days, you can beautifully spend a relaxing afternoon within the sculpture and Futurist artworks of The Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art as the gallery is housed in a stunning Georgian building just off Holloway Road. In this relatively new gallery, you will view some of the important pieces of early 20th century Italian art, under the name of Futurist. Futurist is actually a movement formed in 1909 by F. T. Marinetti. Among the displays of artistic works, you should not miss Umberto Boccioni’s work that represents the first artistic response to Futurist scene and Medardo Rosso, acknowledged as most influential sculptor of his time.
This is the lone art gallery in the art scenario of London that focuses on the significance of modern Italian art on European art and culture. The Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art will present you a real mind expanding experience where you can also attend any workshop where different forms and themes are discussed in the permanent exhibitions. Along with its six galleries displaying art, you will also find an art library, a café with outdoor seating and a bookshop containing posters, catalogues related to the permanent collection.
