Further Biographical Context for Dorothy E. Horton
Dorothy E. Horton was born in 1898 and grew up during the 1900s and 1910s and was inspired by the artistic culture of the time. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by vibrant developments 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 evolved a variety of modes of these key innovations. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be considered to be among the most productive, and are noted as the time in art history when modern and modernist ideas began to take 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 like Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. It was the era of the Bauhaus and the idea of a common discipline amongst the creative arts as a whole. Most, if not all, of the key art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be viewed to source many of their crucial founding ideologies in the astounding diversity of art produced during this time.
