The Golden Age of Russian Impressionism




Art Fortune | Futurism


 An Italian artistic movement that began in around 1910, Futurism drew heavily on the energy and values of the machine. Mechanics and cutting-edge technology was clearly a huge influence for Futurist artists and embodied both painting and sculpture work. Though Futurism was most predominant in Italy, it did take off in other regions as well, but particularly in Russia

Artistically, Futurism is derived from Cubism, having hard lines, geometric shapes, and adopting an avant-garde approach to art as well. The Futurists’ techniques of portraying speed, light and movement, however, were very unique. Artists such as Filippo Marinetti, Giacomo Balla, and Umberto Boccioni were at the forefront of this movement and created well known pieces that include Dynamism of a Soccer Player, Dynamism of a Dog on a Leash, and Unique Forms of Continuity in Space.

The Futurist movement began to diminish around 1918 with the onset of World War I. When the war came to an end, the interest in machines was long over, for the machines that these artists found extraordinary were now becoming common place with the increase of airplanes and automobiles that would eventually come to dominate the 20th century and beyond. However short lived this artistic era was however, we owe much thanks to the innovative Futurist artists for creating such groundbreaking work that would eventually inspire the Dada movement.
