Futurism: Machine Spirit is More Important than Woman’s Beauty
The style is often confused with Cubism. The fundamental difference isthat the Cubists did not celebrate technological progress.
Futurists often emphasized the mobility of the world, depicting successive movements on one canvas. For example, see one of the canvases by Giacomo Balla — it seems that the artist drew a storyboard of a run, and superimposed the drawings one on top of the other.
Futurists paid a lot of attention to external brilliance, progress, but did not pay attention to the emotional state, so the style lost its public interest in several years. After the First World War, no one turned to it.
