At a time of immense political turbulence, the early 20th century witnessed radical transformations in European art with movements such as Cubism, Futurism, and Vorticism, forever changing the way we see the world. Developments in poetry paralleled the dramatic shifts in the visual arts, and the influence of these artists and writers still resonates today.
