Entitled Midday, the 3ft by 2ft 3ins (90 x 70cm) oil on canvas, right, depicts a couple of farmhouses in the shade of an enormous tree. By 1920, Carrà was already moving away from futurism, and exploring new forms while staying in Tuscany and Liguria. In 1927 he explored landscape painting to a greater degree, seeking a new form of
