Born in 1895, Doris Charash grew up during the 1900s and 1910s and was influenced by the artistic atmosphere of the time. The dynamic development of pictorial art defined the first decades of the twentieth century. It was an era of experimentation and post-Impressionism, with artists first investigating Expressionism and Abstraction. Many different collectives and groups of artists across the globe developed different ways of articulating these crucial innovations. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, under the leadership of Piet Mondrian, started to practice important theories concerning Abstraction.
