1950's art

The gesture which we would reproduce on canvas shall no longer be a fixed moment in universal dynamism. It shall simply be the dynamic sensation itself. Indeed, all things move, all things run, all things are rapidly changing.. We would at any price re-enter into life.
—  Manifesto of Futurist Painters, April 1910

Artwork for a Kia-Ora advert “midge on Battersea Bridge” by Hewitt-Lim, 1950 by mikeyashworth

<br />The artwork for one of a series of Kia-Ora adverts in the 1950s that used rhyming puns and artwork by Lewitt-Him. It is a very surreal illustration - with the stylised chimneys of the Battersea Power Station in the background!
