Boccioni's Materia: A Futurist Masterpiece and the Avant-garde in Milan and Paris

£14.99

Product description

This book is in excellent condition - apart from a touch of edge wear on the cover, the book is almost as new with virtually no signs of use.

This book was published at the time of the Guggenheim Museum's exhibition "Boccioni's Materia: A Futurist Masterpiece and the Avant-garde in Milan and Paris".
"With 'Boccioni's Materia: A Futurist Masterpiece and the Avant-garde in Milan and Paris',....Futurism is considered within the greater context of European modernism. The exhibition traces the evolution of a single artist, Umberto Boccioni, through the creation of his pivotal Futurist masterpiece, materia, painted in 1912 in Milan, at a time when the Lombardy capital was quickly transforming into a dynamic and modern city. It further examines the important Futurist activities that took place in Milan and underscores Boccioni's development of key Futurist thematics in his art. Through his exploration of color, the sculptural qualities of form, the multidimensionality of space, and the problematics pertaining to movement, he crystalized his ideas regarding the dynamism of matter and the fusion of interior and exterior spaces - notions integral to the Futurists' synthetic conceptualization of motion, simultaneity, and spatial relationships. But rather than simply present the artist's production as an independent occurrence, Boccioni's Materia examines it in relation to works by his European contemporaries - Georges Braque, Robert Delaunay, Marcel Duchamp, Albert Gleizes, Juan Gris, Fernand Leger and Pablo Picasso - whose Cubism was at the center of the art debate to which Boccioni especially responded."
This book has 40 reproductions, and almost twice as many pictures showing details and other relevant material.
