    La Danseuse is a smart and fresh artwork representing a dancer in movement realized by the Italian Futurist artist Gino Severini. The work references elements of Cubist and Futurist art to express energy in the work. In this representation, the human form dissolves and shatters into splinters of color that are embodied in the colored background. The bidimensional surface is formed by colored wedges that form both curved and straight lines. Here we can recognize an influence of the spatial division resulting from a Cubist research assimilation. Moreover, the colors are juxtaposed on the surface with flat brushstrokes to convey an overall sense of geometric design.
