Further Biographical Context for Ernst Heller
Ernst Heller was born in 1894 and grew up during the 1900s and 1910s and was inspired by the artistic atmosphere of the time. The Fauves are widely considered to be the first major Post-Impressionist group, working in the at the start of the twentieth century. With artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that intense, other worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were a key component of their work. During this same time period a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his famed 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. In Italy, artists including Boccioni, Severini and Balla were looking to capture the speed and dynamism of the machine age, in a movement called Futurism.
