Further Biographical Context for Chen Dengbo
Born in 1895, Chen Dengbo was predominantly influenced by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an time of experimentation, with artists delving into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations inspired artist communities and collectives across the globe, with many groups exploring a variety of methods of expressing their ideas. The first twenty years of the twentieth century are seen as the period in art history where modernist and modern ideas initially began to have cultural effects. They were a prolific time in the art world, and industrial advances such as mechanisation led to other disciplines such as architecture, led by the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld, to grow at an equally high rate. The notion of a shared discipline across all modes of art was epitomised in the Bauhaus movement, which became a prevalent way of thinking about art. These philosophies that we associate today with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of artworks produced during this period.
