Further Biographical Context for Anthony Buchta

Anthony Buchta was born in 1896 and was predominantly inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The dynamic development of pictorial art defined the first decades of the twentieth century. It was an era of experimentation and post-Impressionism, with artists first delving into Expressionism and Abstraction. Many different collectives and groups of artists across the world evolved different ways of articulating these crucial innovations. The first twenty years of the 20th century can be viewed to be the most productive, and are considered as the era in art history when modern and modernist philosophies initially began to take hold culturally. Mechanisation in production and ideas of order and rationality enabled the discipline of architecture to develop at an extraordinary rate, and was epitomised in the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. Bauhaus was predominant at this time and defined the idea of a common discipline across all modes of creative art. Most, if not all, of the ideologies of significant art movements that we associate with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of work made during this time.
