Description

Italian artist Gino Severini was part of the Futurist movement and Divisionism, which emphasized luminosity, defined by the separation of colors into individual dots or patches which interacted optically. He later experimented with Synthetic Cubism, constructing a composition out of fragments of objects.

After a period of working with semi-abstract images he returned to his Futurist roots in the 1950s: dancers, light and movement. This composition "Pas de Deux" features a pair of dancers as viewed through this Futurist-cubist lens, flattened shapes and active, angular lines that give form to the figures.

"Pas de Deux" was done in 1952, this impression was from an artist's proof edition of nineteen, aside from the published edition of 200.
