Further Biographical Context for Alfred Eisenstaedt
Born in 1898, Alfred Eisenstaedt was largely inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are generally considered to be the first foremost Post-Impressionist group, working in the at the start 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 an integral component of painting. At the same time, a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his famous Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had established the first ideas of portraying 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 seeking to capture the rapidity and dynamism of the machine age, in a movement called Futurism.
