Cubism and Futurism are huge contributing Art Movements from the beginning of the 20th Century leading up to what we consider to be “Art” today. This painting is inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s Nude Descending a Staircase. Cubism is fractured images attempting to show more than one facet of an image, concerned with showing more in painting than was possible through photography. Cubism was a direct response to the earlier development of Modern Art and was a step along the way on the route to what is considered contemporary art of today. Futurism is similar to Cubism, but attempts to show movement in a still image. It was the next progressive step after Cubism, and was produced by a group of artists who coined themselves Futurists from 1910-1915. I hope you enjoy this painting entitled Man Consuming Pint.
