Ali Baba was born in 1897 and was primarily inspired by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The Fauves are generally considered to be the first major Post-Impressionist group, working in the at the start of the 20th century. With artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that vivid, other worldly colours and energetic brushstrokes were an integral component of their work. 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 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 speed and dynamism of the machine age, in a movement called Futurism.
