    • Abstract:
      The article deals with the influence of modern machinery, science and industry in modernist painting and sculpture in Europe. Various kinds of primitivism became virtually synonymous with modernism, ranging from techniques in painting, sculpture, and print-making to images of peasants and non-European peoples. Another possible factor in accepting the machine as part of modernity rather than its opponent was the rapid increase of machinery in daily life. Bicycles and automobiles were commonly seen in the first years of the century, so were domestic sewing machines and electric lighting. With the onset of World War I in August, 1914, the machine took on a new and terrifying presence, so much so that the war itself was embodied in the airplane, aerial balloons, the submarine, and motorized vehicles of all sorts, as well as in the ubiquitous cannons, machine guns, barbed wire, and gas masks.
