Further Biographical Context for Djuna Barnes
Born in 1892, Djuna Barnes was primarily influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by lively advances in pictorial art. It was the era of post-Impressionism and of experimentation, including the first ventures into Expressionism and Abstraction. Many different groups of artists or loosely affiliated communities of the avant-garde in different major cities around the world developed different modes of these key innovations. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be seen to be among the most productive, and are noted as the time in art history when modern and modernist ideas first took 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 key art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be viewed to source many of their key founding ideologies in the astounding diversity of art produced during this time.
