Modern artwork. Contemporary artwork. background. Oil portray on canvas.
Barr, who overlooks the ethical, ideological facet in Malevich and Kandinsky, can not help observing in the Italian motion relations to Bergson, Nietzsche and even to fascism; and in analyzing the forms of Futurist art he tries to show they embody the qualities asserted within the manifestos. But if Futurism has an apparent ideological aspect, it isn’t a pure abstract artwork for Barr. It is „near-abstraction,“ for it refers overtly to a world outdoors the canvas and still retains components of representation. Yet the forms of „pure“ summary artwork, which appear to be totally without trace of illustration or escapist morbidity—the Neo-Plasticist works of Mondrian and the later designs of the Constructivists and Suprematists—are apparently influenced of their materials aspect, as textures and shapes, and of their expressive qualities of precision.
