Under The Pergola at Naples, 1914

One of the first collages by Italian Futurist Umberto Boccioni.

Now in the very wonderful Museo del Novecento in Milan, the triangular cutout of a page at the top right hand side carries the lyrics of a popular song that, together with the mandolin, allude to the musical accompaniment of the pre-war lunch enjoyed by the two figures in the shadow of Vesuvius.
