Further Biographical Context for Albert Edward Berbank

Albert Edward Berbank was born in 1896 and was largely inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are widely considered to be the first foremost Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning of the twentieth century. With artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that vivid, other worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were a key component of their work. During this same time period a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his famed Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had established the first ideas of depicting fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. In Italy, artists including Boccioni, Severini and Balla were looking to capture the rapidity and dynamism of the machine age, in a movement named Futurism.
