Further Biographical Context for Clare Burton
Clare Burton was born in 1897 and was primarily inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are widely considered to be the first major Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning of the twentieth century. With artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that vivid, other worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were a key component of painting. During this same time period a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his famous Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had established the initial ideas of portraying fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, led by the teachings of Piet Mondrian, started to practice important theories concerning 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.
