Book Description

Futurism, the invention in 1909 of the Italian writer and cultural impresario F.T. Marinetti, was the defining avante-garde movement of the early twentieth century. Inspired by the cities, technology, speed, and latent violence of the world around them, the Futurists created an art and ideology for their heroic and highly politicized version of modernity. This book examines the impact of futurism in Italy, England, Russia, and elsewhere, as well as its significance for twentieth century art as a whole.

Format: Paperback
A good, entertaining primer on the Futurist movement. A follow up is needed to really dig in depth the various contributors to this exciting art. There are some good reproductions in color and black and white. I'm looking for a book that is more in depth and has a generous sampling of the artwork. Does anyone have any suggestions? Futurism is really an artistic state I think is still with us today. The difference today is it manifests intself within digital media. Artistic celebration of technology is very much with us in today's culture. I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants to get an initial grasp of Futurism.
