Further Biographical Context for Albert M. Canter
Albert M. Canter was born in 1892 and was predominantly inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are widely considered to be the first major 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 painting. During this same time period a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his renowned Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had developed the initial ideas of portraying fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. At the same time, Expressive painting was being developed and explored in a number of places across the world. the Nabis in France were the first to truly explore this movement at the turn of the century, and German groups such as Die Brucke and Der Blaue Reiter soon followed suit, developing the careers of famous artists such as Kirchner, Franz Marc, and Wassily Kandinsky.
