Further Biographical Context for Erhard Amadeus-Dier

Erhard Amadeus-Dier was born in 1893 and was largely inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These years were an era of experimentation, with artists exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations took hold with artist communities and collectives around the world, with many groups developing a variety of ways of expressing their ideas. The first twenty years of the twentieth century are seen as the period in art history where modernist and modern ideas first began to have cultural effects. They were a prolific time in the art world, and industrial advances such as mechanisation led to other disciplines like architecture, led by the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld, to grow at an equally high rate. The notion of a shared discipline across all modes of art was epitomised in the Bauhaus movement, which became a predominant way of thinking about art. These philosophies that we associate today with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of artworks produced during this period.
