An Introduction to Futurism

Stati d’animo – Quelli che vanno, by Umberto Boccioni

An Italian artistic movement, during the early 20th century that grew to embrace painting, sculpture, photography, and architecture to reject the past and revolutionize satiety and make it modern. 

A byproduct of the First World World, the movement was built upon the idea of forming a new society based on the modern myth of the machine and of speed.

The movement encompassed works that embraced bold, controlled chaotic enthusiasm focused on modern simplicity versus the elaborate elegance of Italy’s more known baroque and resonance artistic styles.
