Further Biographical Context for Boleslaw Cybis

Born in 1895, Boleslaw Cybis grew up during the 1900s and 1910s and was influenced by the artistic atmosphere of the time. The Fauves are generally considered to be the first major Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning 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 a key component of their work. At the same time, a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his famed 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 the meantime, Expressive painting was being further established and explored in a number of countries across the world. the Nabis in France were the first to truly explore this movement at the start 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.
