Label Text:
This print presents the conflict at its most tangible, as the inhabited city becomes the locus of war and plays on the public’s fear of invasion. While urban life and the idea of progress was closely linked to the Futurists’ work, Rozanova again refers to the nineteenth-century idea of battles fought with infantry, cavalry, and cannons.
