Further Biographical Context for Chen Bangcai
Born in 1896, Chen Bangcai was largely 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. A variety of collectives and groups of artists across the world developed different ways of articulating these crucial innovations. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, led by the teachings of Piet Mondrian, started to practice important theories about Abstraction. Alongside this, Kasimir Malevich and his contemporaries developed Constructivism and Suprematism in the Soviet Union. These pioneering styles of art were rigorous and politicised, and looked to serve a new world order.
