GOODWILL ART GUIDE — Painting the Environment
The most famous cityscapes were painted by the Futurists, shortly before the First World War, when both motor cars and aeroplanes were quite new inventions. These Italian writers and artists had been quick to realise that the ability to travel fast would totally change the world.
They were exhilarated by 'the beauty of speed' and wanted to express movement on canvas — what things looked like when seen flashing by from inside a car, as well as moving objects viewed from a stationary position. They also tried to portray how people reacted to the 'dynamism' of modern cities.
Today, the noise and fumes of traffic can dominate a city, and pedestrians are obliged to be on guard. But streets are settings for social activity; places where people walk, stop and talk, eat at pavement cafés, and work. Some sit and paint scenes, which may not be easy with passers-by pausing to look at the canvas.
