Possible Artists – The Futurists It was an Italian movement which spread quickly throughout Europe including Russia The poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti (1876- 1944) ‘invented it’ in 1908 with a Manifesto Most influential artists Umberto Boccioni (1882- 1916), Luigi Russolo (1885-1947) and Carlo Carra (1881-1966), Giacomo Balla (1871-1958) and Gino Severini (1883-1965)
Futurist ideas Celebrated the new technology – car, machinery and science, and war as a means of changing the old order Idea that new technologies overturned what had gone before and there needed to be new, bolder art forms
Futurist ideas Emphasis on movement and the dynamic - Idea of everything moving and images appearing and disappearing on the retina and capturing that – action passing through the centre of a painting
Style Painting influenced by the ideas of colour divisionism Also influenced by Cubism and Picasso and the idea of dividing up shapes to show different viewpoints and movement
Duchamp – Nude descending a staircase Although Duchamp was not part of the movement his painting showing the movement of a man walking down the stairs was influential. Photography had made it possible to identify each stage of a movement. You could use photography well in this project
Balla – Street Light 1909 - New inventions in science were important to the Futurists. -they celebrated scientific developments – from the electric light to the plane.
