Further Biographical Context for Douglas Chandor

Born in 1897, Douglas Chandor grew up during the 1900s and 1910s and was influenced by the artistic atmosphere of the time. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by lively 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 many modes of these significant innovations. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be considered to be among the most fertile, 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 such as Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. It was the era of the Bauhaus and the idea of a common discipline across all modes of creative arts. Most, if not all, of the key art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be viewed to source many of their key founding philosophies in the incredible diversity of work produced during this period.
