The book

In the two essays in this book, written in the 1920s, Gino Severini, the Italian Futurist painter living in Paris, and Albert Gleizes, painter and co-author of Du Cubisme, the first important theoretical defence of Cubism, reflect upon the central principles that guided painting from the Renaissance to the challenge of Cubism and Futurism in early years of the twentieth century. Severini concludes here that the artist has no choice but to master the scientific facts of pictorial representation, while Gleizes defends non-representational painting as going beyond the principles of the Renaissance to open up our sense of rhythm and time.
