Further Biographical Context for Chen Guangzao
Chen Guangzao was born in 1890 and was predominantly influenced by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by vibrant developments in pictorial art. It was the era of post-Impressionism and of experimentation, including the first forays into Expressionism and Abstraction. Many different groups of artists or loosely affiliated communities of the avant-garde in a number of major cities around the world developed many modes of these key innovations. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be seen to be among the most fruitful, and are noted as the time in art history when modern and modernist ideas began to take hold of cultural production. The new order and rationality, alongside mechanisation in modes of production, saw art’s parallel discipline of architecture develop at an astonishing rate in the work of designers such as Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. It was the era of the Bauhaus and the idea of a common discipline across all modes of creative arts. Most, if not all, of the significant art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be viewed to source many of their essential founding ideologies in the astounding diversity of art produced during this time.
