Further Biographical Context for Doris Huestis Mills
Doris Huestis Mills was born in 1894 and was primarily inspired by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The vigorous 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. A variety of collectives and groups of artists across the globe developed many ways of expressing these crucial innovations. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, led by the teachings 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 revolutionary styles of art were demanding and politicised, and looked to serve a new world order.
