The Many Books of Futurism Cont.

Buy Taylor’s book

Provided by the Museum of Modern Art, Joshua C. Taylor’s Futurism combines analysis, history, and love of the movement in this book.  A stark comparison to Tisdall’s and Bozzolla’s objectivity in their take on Futurism.  He concentrates mostly on the artwork created by the Italian movement and less on the other contributions.  Since Futurism has a bit of a red-headed step child status in the art history world, Taylor devotes pages to defending it.  For example, Taylor disputes the idea that Futurism consists of nothing more than a derivative of Cubism.  The book has lovely reproductions of Futurist artwork and Taylor’s love make for a quick and engaging read.
