Severini, Gino

Severini, Gino jē´nō sāvārē´nē [key], 1883–1966, Italian painter. In 1906 he settled in Paris. First associated with the cubist painters, he later became a principal figure in the movement known as futurism . Severini was greatly influenced by Seurat and theories of neoimpressionism. The most lyrical and decorative of the futurists, he occasionally sprinkled his canvases with sequins, as in Hieroglyph of the Bal Tabarin (1912 Mus. of Modern Art, New York City).
