Historical Context of United States
The US, particularly New York city, endures as a focal point that has played a substantial role in developing modern and contemporary art in the twentieth century. The idea of New York as a new cosmopolitan and highly influential art centre came to be in the post war era, and the city succeeded in asserting its supremacy over Paris, which used to be regarded as the most powerful international art centre. The authority of the political and economic structures of the United States in the modern era has provided the country with a prevailing influence on the visual culture of the world. Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Neo-Expressionism, Graffiti and Street Art, are essential art movements that flourished in the US. These very movements also echoed into a myriad of variations, such as alternative forms of Abstract Expressionism, as well as East and West Coast variants of Pop Art, among others. Some internationally acclaimed U.S artists of the modern age include Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella, Donald Judd, Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, Julian Schnabel, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring.
Further Biographical Context for Eugene Von Bruenchenhein
Eugene Von Bruenchenhein was born in 1910 and was predominantly inspired creatively by the 1920s growing up. The notable innovations established in the early years of the 20th century were matured further in the 1920s and 1930s. This period began the careers of many innovative and inspiring practitioners in the pictorial arts. However it was a period of reflection following the horrors of the First World War, and major shifts in politics took place internationally. The philosophy of Marxism was prevalent among artist communities and groups. Founded in 1919, the Bauhaus became an indispensable place for the development of ideas surrounding the unification of art, craft and design – an idea which became known as the Gesamtkunstwerk.
