Further Biographical Context for Da Bei
Da Bei was born in 1891 and grew up during the 1900s and 1910s and was influenced by the artistic culture of the time. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the vibrant development of visual and pictorial art. These years were an time of experimentation, with artists delving into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These developments inspired artist communities and collectives across the globe, with many groups developing a variety of ways of expressing their ideas. The first twenty years of the twentieth century are viewed 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 like architecture, led by the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld, to develop at an equally high rate. The idea of a common discipline across all modes of art was epitomised in the Bauhaus movement, which became a predominant 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.
