FuturismBook - 2009
This volume traces the Futurist movement from its origins in Italy to the international creative forum. The Futurists's aim was to express the energetic, dynamic, and violent quality of contemporary life, especially as embodied in the motion and force of modern machinery. Futurism embodied the same reality that it tried to capture: a dynamism that reflected the changing structure of the visible world. This work is illustrated with some 130 works by luminaries such as Boccioni, Balla, Picasso, Braque, Leger, Sonia and Robert Delaunay, Duchamp, and Malevich, the book explores different modes of expression within shared themes -- the lighting of modern cities, dance, crowd movement, and the speed of new mechanical means of transport. It includes essays by the world's leading authorities on Futurism and the avant-garde.
