Further Biographical Context for Edvin Helseth
Edvin Helseth was born in 1925 and was largely inspired creatively by the 1950s growing up. During the Post War period, New York City became the international focus for Modernism. During the Second World War, many artists had made their way to the city after having fled in exile from Europe, which resulted in a merging and amalgamation of abilities and ideas. Whilst in New York, influential Europeans such as Piet Mondrian, Josef Albers and Hans Hoffmann provided inspiration for American artists, and influenced cultural development in the United States for many decades that followed. Significant artists of this period included Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Frank Kline, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Adolph Gottlieb. In later revisions, the contributions and efforts of female artists such as Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, and Louise Bourgeois have been celebrated, amongst many other female creatives.
