Further Biographical Context for Edmond Charlus

Edmond Charlus was born in 1892 and was primarily inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by vibrant advances 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 associated communities of the avant-garde in different major cities around the world developed many modes of these key innovations. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be seen to be among the most fertile, and are noted as the time in art history when modern and modernist ideas first took 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 amongst all the creative arts. Most, if not all, of the significant art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be seen to source many of their crucial founding philosophies in the incredible diversity of work produced during this period.
