Luigi Russolo, Profumo (Perfume), 1910

Russolo-Luigi-Profumo

This is a painting titled Profumo (Perfume) by the Italian Futurist artist Luigi Russolo. It is dated 1910 and it belongs to the collections of Il Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto, in Italy.

I like the way Russolo shows the sensory experience of smell, translating fragrance into colors and lines that engulf the female subject.
