Further Biographical Context for Ernest Michael Dinkel
Born in 1894, Ernest Michael Dinkel was largely inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are generally considered to be the first foremost Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning of the 20th century. With artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that vivid, other worldly colours and energetic brushstrokes were an integral component of painting. During this same time period a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his renowned Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had developed the first ideas of portraying fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. The first twenty years of the twentieth century can be viewed to be the most prolific, and are seen as the era in art history when modern and modernist ideas initially began to take hold culturally. Mechanisation in production and ideas of order and rationality enabled the discipline of architecture to develop at an extraordinary rate, and was epitomised in the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. Bauhaus was prevalent at this time and defined the idea of a common discipline across all sectors of creative art. Most, if not all, of the ideologies of significant art movements that we associate with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of work produced at this time.
