Further Biographical Context for Chang Dai-Chien
Born in 1899, Chang Dai-Chien's creative work was largely influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. 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 developed many ways of expressing these crucial innovations. The first twenty years of the twentieth century can be considered to be the most prolific, and are noted as the time 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 extraordinary rate, and was defined by in the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. Bauhaus was predominant during this era and defined the idea of a common discipline across all types 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.
