FUNDACIóN JUAN MARCH

Futurist Depero 1913-1950

Text by Fortunato Depero, Manuel Fontán del Junco, Maurizio Scudiero, Gianluca Poldi, Llanos Gómez Menéndez, Carolina Fernández Castrillo, Pablo Echaurren, Alessandro Ghignoli, Claudia Salaris, Giovanna Ginex, Belén Sánchez Albarrán, Raffaele Bedarida, Giovanni Lista, Fabio Belloni, Aida Capa, Marta Suárez- Infiesta.

"L'innaffiatore delle vie di New York (New York Road Sprinkler)" (1930) is reproduced from <I>Futurist Depero 1913-1950</I>.This gorgeous, clothbound, nearly 500-page volume presents a generous overview of one of the Futurist movement's most prolific and visionary figures. Fortunato Depero announced his allegiance to the Futurist cause with the manifesto "Futurist Reconstruction of the Universe" (coauthored with Giacomo Balla), and went on to attempt exactly that, traversing all disciplines—painting, sculpture, theatre and set design, poetry, graphic design, textiles and toy design—and infusing them with Futurism's joyous, energetic color palette and embrace of mechanization and speed. Depero was a pioneer in several fields: he created one of the first artist's museums, several classic artist's books (such as his famous "bolted book" of 1927) and the first artist's "factory"—the Casa d'Arte Futurista in Rovereto, Italy, which produced toys, tapestries and furniture in the Futurist style. He was also very successful as a graphic designer, and his 1932 bottle design for Campari Soda is still in production. Surveying over 300 works from the gamut of his vast output, Futurist Depero is a wonderful, rich celebration of this fascinating Futurist protagonist.

Fortunato Depero (1892–1960) encountered Futurism on a visit to Florence in 1913 and quickly became one of its leading exponents. In 1928 Depero relocated to New York, the city he called the New Babel, where he lived and worked between 1928 and 1930, designing costumes for stage productions, covers for magazines including The New Yorker and Vogue, and opening the Depero Futurist House. He returned to the US in 1947, living in New Milford, Connecticut from March 1948 to October 1949, where he wrote his autobiography, So I Think, So I Paint. His works were featured prominently in the 2014 Guggenheim exhibition Italian Futurism and The Museum of Modern Art's Inventing Abstractions.

"L'innaffiatore delle vie di New York (New York Road Sprinkler)" (1930) is reproduced from Futurist Depero 1913-1950.

Futurist Depero 1913-1950

Futurist Depero 1913-1950

In Futurist Depero 1913-1950, Fondación Juan March's wonderful new monograph on the prolific and visionary Futurist Fortnato Depero, Manuel Fontán del Junco describes the artist as someone who "constructed an entirely new Futurist universe, a multi-faceted, multi-media, total and global artist: tireless
as a painter, sculptor, draftsman, playwright, set designer, writer, poet, essayist, graphic and advertising designer, creator of typographical architectural structures and display stands
for trade fairs, books, magazines, commercial logos, toys and tapestries, a cultural entrepreneur and the inventor of one of
 the first artist’s books
of all times. And he continued to be so until the very end of his life." Featured image is a detail from Depero's 1927 "Anihccam 3000," a poster for the mechanized ballet whose stage sets and costumes he designed. It was most likely the last playbill made by the artist for one of his own shows. continue to blog
