The Noises of the Street Invade the House (1911, Oil on canvas; Sprengel Museum, Hanover)

Umberto Boccioni joined the Futurism movement in 1910, Futurism wanted to discard the static and irrelevant art of the past and express the onrush of events in the world with pictures of motion, dynamism, and power. Boccini's 'The Noises of The Street Invade the House' attempts to give this sensation. Noise becomes something seen, something literally invasive of privacy. Boccioni said of the picture: "all life and the noises of the street rush in at the same time as the movement and the reality of the objects outside".
