Further Biographical Context for Cleo Crawford

Cleo Crawford was born in 1892 and was primarily inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are generally considered to be the first foremost Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning of the 20th century. With artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that intense, other worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were an integral component of painting. At the same time, a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his famed 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, under the leadership of Piet Mondrian, began to practice pioneering theories concerning Abstraction. Alongside this, Kasimir Malevich and his contemporaries developed Constructivism and Suprematism in the Soviet Union. These pioneering styles of art were demanding and politicised, and looked to serve a new world order.
