When he returned from the war in 1918, Sironi settled in Milan, a dynamic and modern industrial city, which became the place where to show his personal artistic research. He was one of the promoters of the ‘Novecento Italiano’ group (1925) and one of the most fervent advocates of the need to a ‘call to order’. In this work, the artist depicts the restless modernity of a metropolis with geometrical and simplified subjects with the tones of brown and earth that convey a nostalgic and dark mood.
