Further Biographical Context for Channing Weir Hare

Channing Weir Hare was born in 1899 and was predominantly inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are generally considered to be the first major Post-Impressionist group, working in the at the start of the twentieth century. With artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that intense, other worldly colours and energetic brushstrokes were an integral component of painting. During this same time period 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 developed the first ideas of portraying fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. The first twenty years of the twentieth century can be viewed to be the most fruitful, and are seen as the era 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 predominant during this era and defined the idea of a common discipline across all modes of creative art. Most, if not all, of the philosophies of important art movements that we associate with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of work produced during this time.
