Further Biographical Context for Eugène Carlberg
Eugène Carlberg was born in 1897 and was largely influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by dynamic developments in pictorial art. It was the era of post-Impressionism and of experimentation, including the first forays into Expressionism and Abstraction. Many different groups of artists or loosely affiliated communities of the avant-garde in a number of major cities around the world developed many modes of these significant innovations. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be viewed to be among the most fruitful, and are noted as the time in art history when modern and modernist ideas first took hold of cultural production. The new order and rationality, alongside mechanisation in modes of production, saw art’s parallel discipline of architecture develop extraordinarily in the work of designers such as Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. It was the era of the Bauhaus and the idea of a common discipline across all the creative arts. Most, if not all, of the key art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be seen to source many of their key founding ideologies in the incredible diversity of art produced during this period.
