Sample text

The expression of movement had become a key concern in many areas of art, first with Cubism’s multiple perspectives and then more forcefully in the work of the Italian Futurists, such as Umberto Boccioni’s The City Rises (1910) and Giacomo Balla’s Dynamism of a Dog on a Leash (1912). Artists of the period were becoming increasingly frustrated with the static nature of painting, realising its ultimate inadequacy in representing the world around them – the modern world of movement, and above all, speed.
