It was in contravention of norms

                                                                                                    Artist: Renoir
Image: Renoir's Impressionist Painting
- Bouquet of Chrysanthemums  (here)
(notice the uncouth disarray of lines and 
loud colors typical of the impressions era)

It was in contravention of norms
contingent upon provocations
of revolutionaries of art forms

Futuristic with a vicious snarl
as cowering cubism laying in wait
for too long. It was in contradiction
of the  master's forays of movements

Whorls and wavy lines wavering
wilfully in loud colors with splashes
of orange-red and black. Very much
that of octopus-like tentacles around
an apparition wretched looking

Impressionism was defying perspectives
unbridled and undaunted about distances
Appearing uncouth it caused upheavals
to conventional still life, portraits
and scenic landscape beauties

For Bjorn's at d'Verse's  MTB  -  with futurism

  2. Maybe each time has its own revolution... maybe we need one for today as well...

  3. This is quite an idea for even today! But I'd go for not too much of a dark side!

  8. Each art period seems to start with a revolution & causing upheaval with the norm ~

  9. this future is now our past - very nice imagery of the forces that drove this art
    - "Appearing uncouth it caused upheavals" - ah so true - the shock of the new

  10. A little revolution can sure bring forth some new forms and ideas.

  11. Whorls and wavy lines wavering
    willfully in loud colors with splashes
    of orange-red and black.

    The W's and short A's in splashes and black... not to mention the image conjured... this is truly a brilliant passage in a great poem. Good work!

  12. Love how you captured the raw wriggling emergence of the movement impressed upon the snobby art world.
