Boccioni (Umberto) papers
Series II. Manuscripts, notes and clippings, 1910-1916, undated 2 box(es)
Series II.B. Notes and clippings, 1911, undated 0.25 Linear Feet
Notes and handwritten drafts of a more preliminary nature than those in Series II.A. Some of these bear the same title as pieces finally collected in Boccioni's book, such as "Che cosa ci divide dal cubismo," and "Fondamento plastico della pittura futurista." Articles Boccioni collected about art or literature from French and Italian periodicals and a list of texts and authors he prepared, apparently for a family member, offer evidence of his reading interests.
