Boccioni's "The charge of the lancers" - 1915

 
"What we want to do is to show the living object in its dynamic growth"
 
Umberto Boccioni (IT 1882-1916) depicts a fierce cavalry trampling soldiers with bayonets.
The tragic irony of this picture lies in the fact that just one year later Boccioni died after being
thrown from, and trampled by, his horse. (source: Art every day)
