Further Biographical Context for Chen Danxu
Chen Danxu was born in 1898 and was predominantly inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. 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 investigating Expressionism and Abstraction. A variety of collectives and groups of artists across the world developed many ways of expressing these crucial innovations. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, led by the teachings of Piet Mondrian, started to practice pioneering 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.
