Further Biographical Context for Carlos Enriquez Gomez
Carlos Enriquez Gomez was born in 1900 and was predominantly influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The first major Post-impressionism movement in the first years of the twentieth century is generally considered to be the Fauves, a group for whom vivid, other-worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were a key component of painting, and who counted Henri Matisse as a member. In Paris during the same time, a young Pablo Picasso painted his famed Blue and Rose periods. By the end of the decade, along with Georges Braque, he had developed the first fracturing of pictorial reality with Analytical Cubism. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be considered to be among the most productive, and are noted as the time in art history when modern and modernist ideas first took hold of cultural production. The new order and rationality, alongside mechanisation in modes of production, saw art’s parallel discipline of architecture develop extraordinarily in the work of designers like Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. It was the era of the Bauhaus and the idea of a common discipline across all modes of creative arts. Most, if not all, of the key art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be seen to source many of their crucial founding principles in the incredible diversity of art produced during this period.
