Filippo Marinetti quotes: explaining the Italian Futurist art movement - for students and pupils

Filippo Marinetti quotes: explaining the Italian Futurist art movement - for students and pupils

Filippo Marinetti quotes explain and describe the ideas & goals of Italian Futurism art - free art-resource for students, pupils and art teachers . Marinetti was an Italian poet, writer and editor. He founded Futurism by publishing his first ‘Futurist Manifesto’ in 1909 in ‘Le Figaro’. Marinetti’s quotes reveal, that violence, dynamics, rolling traffic and moving masses in the modern city were most important inspirations for him. This was Marinetti’s thorough ground to develop Futurism as a new art movement and to call for Futurist visual art, which could express these new phenomena of the modern cities, then! It was a few years later that Marinetti found in 1911 his Futurist companions in the younger artists, Boccioni, Carrà, Severini and Russolo, a. o… They published a common ‘Futurist Manifesto’. In 1918 Marinetti connected Futurism closely with Italian Fascism. . Some selected quotes of Marinetti - as a short introduction of his extended quotes in the PDF: ’Idealists, workers of thought, unite to show how inspiration and genius walk in step with the progress of the machine, of aircraft, of industry, of trade, of the sciences, of electricity.’ - quote of Marinetti, in a review of his ‘Poesia’, 1905 ’…there is no longer any beauty except the struggle. Any work of art that lacks a sense of aggression can never be a masterpiece.’ - Marinetti’s quote, from his first ‘Futurist Manifesto’, 1909 ’Try to live the war pictorially studying it in all its mechanical forms (military trains, fortifications, wounded men, ambulances, hospitals, parades, etc).’ - quote from Marinetti’s letter to Severini, Nov. 1914 ’With Futurism, instead, art is turning into art-action, which is to say, into will, optimism, aggression, possession, penetration, delight, brutal reality within art,… …geometrical splendor of forces, projections forward. Thus, art is becoming Presence, new Object…’ - quote from ‘The Futurist Reconstruction of the Universe’, March, 1915 . links for selected art-resources on Marinetti: biographical notes on Marinetti, Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filippo_Tommaso_Marinetti artist-quotes of ànd about Marinetti, on Wikiquote: https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Filippo_Tommaso_Marinetti . editor: Fons Heijnsbroek / Matrozenhof (FotoDutch on Wikiquote):<br>[http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/User:FotoDutch]

Carlo Carra quotes: on his Futurist painting art & artist-life in Italy - for students and pupils

Carlo Carra quotes, on Futurist painting art & his artistic life in Italy - free art-resource for students, pupils and art teachers . Carlo Carra’s quotes reveal a very involved artist in Italian Futurism. He was strongly fascinated by moving masses and had a lot of sympathy for the anarchist movement. Several paintings of Carra were inspired by this motif of moving masses, like his famous painting ‘The Funeral of the Anarchist Galli’, he painted in 1911. Later in his life Carra became an ultra-nationalist and joined after 1918 even Italian fascism, together with Marinetti, the Futurist leader. After World War 1. Carra began to focus his painting art strongly on ‘Form’, along with painter-artist De Chirico. . Some selected artist-quotes of Carlo Carra - as a short introduction of his extended quotes in the PDF: ’We insist that our concept of perspective is the total antitheses of all static perspective. It is dynamic and chaotic in application, producing in the mind of the observer a veritable mass of plastic emotions.’ - quote in Carra’s text (criticizing Cubism): ‘Piani plastici come espanzione sferica nello spazio’, March 1913 ’This bubbling and whirling of forms and lights, composed of sounds, noises, and smells has been partly achieved by me in my [painting] ‘Anarchical funeral’… …by Boccioni in his [painting] ‘States of Minds’… …Russolo in ‘Rebellion’ and Severini in ‘Pan-Pan’ - quote of Carra, in his text ‘La Pittura dei suoni, rumori, odori Carrà’, August 1913 ’…that dizzy seething of forms and acoustic lights, rowdy and smelly… …to obtain this total painting which calls for the active cooperation [by the spectator!] of all the senses: painting of the plastic mood of the universal, you have to paint the way drunkards sing and vomit, sounds, noises and smells.’ - quote from his text, in ‘Lacerba’ vol. 1. no. 17, Florence, Sept. 1913 . links for selected art-resources on Carlo Carra: extended biographical notes of Carra, on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlo_Carrà artist-quotes of ànd about Carra, on Wikiquote: https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Carlo_Carrà images of his painting art, on Wikiart: https://www.wikiart.org/en/carlo-carra . editor: Fons Heijnsbroek / Matrozenhof (FotoDutch on Wikiquote):<br>[http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/User:FotoDutch]

Umberto Boccioni quotes: on painting art and his life in Italian Futurism - for students and pupils

Umberto Boccioni quotes, on his painting art and life in Italian Futurism - free art-resource for students, pupils and art teachers . Umberto Boccioni was strongly involved with the dynamic ideas of Futurism, as his quotes reveal. He mainly created paintings; some years later he explored Futurist sculpture. Boccioni was one of the most passionate Futurists, defending and developing the Futurist ideas in very vivid art debates in Paris with Cubist artists - criticizing them as ‘old & classical’. Boccioni was a leading editor of the ‘Manifesto of Futurist Painters’, 1910 - cooperating closely with Futurists Carra, Severini and Russolo. He died young. . Some selected quotes of Umberto Boccioni - as a short introduction on his extended quotes in the PDF: ’The street enters the house’ - title of one of Boccioni’s Futurist paintings, made in 1911 ’A time will come when the picture will no longer be enough. Its immobility will become an archaism with the vertiginous movement of human life. The eye of man will perceive colours as feelings within itself…’ - Boccioni’s quote from his lecture ‘La Pittura Futurista’ in Rome, May 1911 ’I work a lot but don’t seem to finish. That is, I hope what I am doing means something because I don’t know what I am doing. It’s strange and terrible but I feel calm. Today I worked non-stop for six hours on a sculpture… .Planes upon planes, sections of muscles, of a face and then? And the total effect? Does what I create live? Where will I end up?’ - quote of Boccioni, in a letter to his Futurist mate Severini, c. 1912-13 ’All shadows have their light, each shadow being an autonomous unit forming a new individuality with its own chiaroscuro: it is no longer a form that is half-shadow, half-light, as hat hitherto been the case’ - quote from his text ‘Dynanisme plastique’, 1914 . links for selected art-resources on Boccioni extended biographical notes of Boccioni, on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umberto_Boccioni artist-quotes of ànd about Boccioni, on Wikiquote: https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Umberto_Boccioni images of his painting and sculpture art, on Wikiart: https://www.wikiart.org/en/Search/Boccioni . editor: Fons Heijnsbroek / Matrozenhof (FotoDutch on Wikiquote):<br>[http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/User:FotoDutch]
