Further Biographical Context for Elsie M. Cane
Elsie M. Cane was born in 1890 and was predominantly influenced creatively by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The vigorous development of pictorial art defined the first decades of the twentieth century. It was an era of experimentation and post-Impressionism, with artists first delving into Expressionism and Abstraction. A variety of collectives and groups of artists across the world evolved many ways of expressing these crucial innovations. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, under the leadership of Piet Mondrian, started to practice pioneering theories concerning 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.
