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.
