Further Biographical Context for Eugen Hepp
Born in 1894, Eugen Hepp was largely influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are generally considered to be the first major Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning 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 an integral component of their work. At the same time, a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his famous Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had developed the initial ideas of depicting fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. The first twenty years of the 20th century can be considered to be the most fruitful, 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 ensured the discipline of architecture to develop at an astounding rate, and was defined by 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 types 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 during this time.
