Publisher's Description
With the publication of the Futurist Manifesto in 1909, F. T. Marinetti repudiated the narcissism and nostalgia of fin-de-siecle art and declared a new aesthetic: "We affirm that the world's splendor has been enriched by a new beauty: the beauty of speed." This volume is devoted to the work of principal figures in the futurist movement--Italians Umberto Boccioni, Giacomo Balla, Gino Severino, and Carlo Carra--as well as to the vast international influence of the movement in painting, architecture, ceramics, sculpture, music, photography, theater, film, interior decoration, and fashion. In over 800 illustrations Futurism & Futurisms provides a comprehensive look at an aesthetic created to reflect the energy and fascination with technology of the early years of this century.
