Carlo Carrà

Carrà, Carlo (käräˈ) [key], 1881–1966, Italian painter. Trained as a decorator, he became associated with the artists involved in the development of futurism. His The Funeral of the Anarchist Galli (1911; Mus. of Modern Art, New York City) typifies the energy of the movement. He then moved toward a more carefully structured art form, related to cubism but concerned with the dynamics of movement. After meeting Chirico in 1916, Carrà became a spokesman of the metaphysical school. A prolific writer on art, he also exerted considerable influence as a teacher.
