Futurism

Futurism is an early 20th-century art movement centered in Italy and announced in the 1909 "Futurist Manifesto" by the Italian poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. Futurism emphasized the vitality of the machine above all, and the speed, power and energy of modern life. In his Manifesto, Marinetti discarded what he saw as the irrelevant art of the past; he celebrated invention, originality and change. Futurism glorified technology and conceived of the beauty of violent conflict; it was openly inflammatory and bombastic, seeking to dismantle museums and libraries and to celebrate the vigor of machines, such as the automobile. Violence was glorified, and many Futurists were active in revolutionary and anarchistic movements. Force and motion were their supreme foci. Along with Marinetti, the Futurists included Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carra, Luigi Russolo, Giacomo Balla and Gino Severini. Influenced first by Post-Impressionism, the Futurists developed alongside and independently of Parisian Cubism, which they denounced as lifeless. The Futurists lauded heroism, patriotism and courage, and they sometimes responded with physical violence to criticism of their agenda. In the militancy of their stance, they clearly heralded the avant-garde strains of modernism. Their work demonstrates a preoccupation, not only with the modern world's flood of visual stimuli, but with the temporal storm of fast, violent, powerful machines relentlessly propelling the world into the future.

I might have gotten this but if this is beginner's ballet (based upon editor's description) why does the cover illustration have a girl en pointe? That doesn't happen until year two or three even. It will give girls the wrong impression--that going en pointe is easy, fast and will happen almost automatically. The cover illustration is enough to not get this book.

After reading that this product wouldn't work on cheap magnetic brass hinges, I tried buying new ones in bronze. After a couple of failures with buying the correct size/type of hinge, I decided to try the rub n buff.For those who asked about using this over cheap hinges that are actually brass color over steel or aluminum (do magnet test), rub n buff does work. I just did it. Soak hinges in mineral spirits or thinner. Spray clean hinges with zinseer123, I used white which I had on hand. Let dry. (I sprayed both sides and let dry over night). Once dry, I applied rub n buff with a rag. Because I used white zinseer123 primer I had to used a toothbrush to apply the rub n buff in the crevices that showed still showed white. I used ebony and autumn gold to create bronze. They look amazing.

The watercolor dot cards is by and large one of the best products I've ever bought, and something I wish every watercolor company did. I bought this from Daniel Smith's official site, but it should be said here. The colors exceeded my expectations, especially for what you get which are small samples of all their colors available. They stretch a lot longer than you'd expect, and the colors themselves are beyond marvelous. I plan on buying a few full size paint tubes for my supplies.
