The article discusses the development of the genre of the "airscape," though illustrations by CRW Nevinson. Nevinson was an acclaimed Futurist who sought to realize the dimensionless realm through painting. His keen fascination with the sky and modernism fuelled his dedication to the art, and he was the first British artist of his kind, even flying with pilots to be able to capture the experience. His unique artistic techniques allowed him to convey the spatial dimensions of the sky as well of the movement of airplanes in the sky.
