GOODWILL ART GUIDE — Key Modern Art Styles

CUBISM & FUTURISM
In the early 20th century some French and Italian painters tried new approaches to express the ‘modern’ age in which they lived.



This set examines Cubism or 'geometric painting' led in Paris from 1907 by Picasso and Braque. It also covers the Italian Futurists who published a manifesto on the difficult task of painting motion on canvas.
Cubists aimed to purify painting — searching for ways to create a new optical experience by relating 3-dimensional space to a flat surface. This challenged artists everywhere, particularly in Russia where Malevich led the way.
