“The Metaphysical forms which compose our Futurist pictures are the result of realities conceived and realities created entirely by the artist. These last are inspired by the emotion or intuition and dependent on atmosphere-ambience.”


Gino Severini from "Art du fantastique dans le sacre" in "Gino Severini: Ecrit sur l'art", (1913-1962), Editions Cercle d'Art, Paris, 1987
