Carlo Carrà was a prominent member of the Futurists, who combined the radical painting techniques of Cubism with an enthusiasm for modernity. Woman at the Balcony is a study for the painting entitled Simultaneity, Woman on the Balcony, 1912. In both compositions, a fragmented female figure looks outward. This particular motif was popular among the Futurists as a way to represent the complex nature of reality. However, this phase of Carrà’s career was brief. He ultimately abandoned the movement for a new focus: stillness.
