Further Biographical Context for Dorothy Adamson
Dorothy Adamson was born in 1894 and was predominantly influenced creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are generally considered to be the first foremost Post-Impressionist group, working in the at the start of the 20th century. Including artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that vivid, other worldly colours and energetic brushstrokes were a key component of their work. At the same time, a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his renowned Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had developed the initial ideas of depicting fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, led by the teachings of Piet Mondrian, began to practice pioneering theories about 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.
