Cubism and Futurism
I personally never liked modern art because I never knew how to look at it, but after learning more about the motives for movements like Cubism sand Futurism it makes much more sense to me. I understand what Cezanne was saying when he said all things always simplify down to shapes like circles and cylinders and other rounded figures. Also, in terms of Futurism, I recognize their enthusiasm with the future. I too see many possibilities in the future, and the Futurists simply put those feelings into art. The cubist method of disassembling various scenes and then leaving it to the viewer to interpret the art for him/herself is very engaging and interesting. It is fascinating how looking at the seeming unrelated shapes can make ones mind put them together into the form they were decomposed from.
