The Estorick Collection of Modern Art situated in a Georgian building just off Canonbury Square is one of my favourite art galleries. Although small I never tire of the ever-changing permanent collection which runs the entire gamut of 20th century Italian art from the futurists such as Balla, Severini (his pointillistic Boulevard of 1910-11 is one of the true highlights of Italian art) and Boccioni to the supreme equine sculptures of Marino Marini, the (literally) potty female forms of Campigli or the still-lives of Morandi. But there are also temporary exhibitions which rarely fail to prove enlightening such as the resurrected survey of the life and works of Tulio Crali, a sort of futurist born in Zadar, Croatia whose mesmerising vision of a pilot descending into a whirlwind of skyscrapers is one of the many high points of this exhibition. A sort of earlier Italian version of Peter Lanyon perhaps? Collages of machinery, a flurry of bits of human anatomy in a mask and a room of bizarre sculptures made out of found objects also feature.

We had not been to the Estorick Gallery for many years but came to see the Crali exhibition which was excellent. I have always enjoyed looking at Futurist paintings and this is a great gallery to see them. I will come again sometime. The cafe is nice but expensive.

Our second visit to the Estorick - always interesting and informative special exhibitions. The permanent collection is interesting but the special exhibitions give a fascinating (and refreshingly non-English) insight to artistic movements and their interaction with political and social events. The next exhibition starting April 22nd is mid-20th Century textile design from Genoa - can't wait. There is a little cafe serving tasty looking warm luches, but on a rainy day when they can't use the courtyard it fills up fast.

I hadn’t heard about this gallery until recently but decided to visit and it was a fantastic find. Set in a Georgian house a short walk from Highbury and Islington Station the current exhibition is Tullio Crali, a futuristic painter. I hadn’t been aware of him before but this array of pictures dating from when he was only 15 until the 1980s. A very distinctive style using recognisable structures but combined with a whole mixture of abstract and figurative elements. This is a great exhibition that is on until the 11th of April. There is a very pleasant cafe with a range of Italian food and in the good whether a lovely outside area to sit out in for a coffee.
