futurismo

Abstract Speed
Giacomo Balla, 1913
Oil on canvas (530x750), Private Collection

"And so, faces smeared with good factory muckóplastered with metallic waste, with senseless sweat, with celestial sootówe, bruised, our arms in slings, but unafraid, declared our high intentions to all the living of the earth:"

From The Manifesto of Futurism.

Futurists...arrogant, sexist, cocky young Italian boys. Incredible painters. Everything is nicked from the Bob Osborn's excellent Futurism site.
