Giuseppe Sexto Canegallo falls between the two art movements of divisionism and futurism, it is amazing to consider that this was painted in around 1920. His palette uses a pointillist style which is so forward thinking that one would on first inspection consider this to be a painting from the 1970’s confirming that he was perhaps half a century ahead of his time.
