Further Biographical Context for Dore Corty
Born in 1890, Dore Corty's creative work was largely inspired 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 vivid, other worldly colours and energetic brushstrokes were a key component of painting. At the same time, 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 first ideas of portraying fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. The first twenty years of the 20th century can be considered to be the most fruitful, and are seen as the period in art history when modern and modernist philosophies first began to take hold culturally. Mechanisation in production and ideas of order and rationality ensured the discipline of architecture to develop at an astounding rate, and was epitomised in the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. Bauhaus was prevalent at this time and defined the idea of a common discipline across all sectors of creative art. Most, if not all, of the ideologies of significant art movements that we associate with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of work made during this era.
