Further Biographical Context for Audrey Chalmers
Born in 1893, Audrey Chalmers was primarily inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The vigorous 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 communities of artists across the globe developed many ways of expressing these crucial innovations. The first twenty years of the 20th century can be viewed to be the most prolific, and are noted as the period in art history when modern and modernist ideas first began to take hold culturally. Mechanisation in production and ideas of order and rationality enabled the discipline of architecture to develop at an astounding rate, and was defined by in the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. Bauhaus was prevalent during this era and defined the idea of a common discipline across all types of creative art. Most, if not all, of the philosophies of significant art movements that we associate with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of work produced during this era.
