Further Biographical Context for Ferruccio Ferrazzi

Ferruccio Ferrazzi was born in 1891 and grew up during the 1900s and 1910s and was influenced by the artistic culture of the time. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by dynamic advances 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 different major cities around the world evolved many modes of these key innovations. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be seen to be among the most productive, 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 at an astonishing rate 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 the creative arts as a whole. Most, if not all, of the core art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be seen to source many of their key founding philosophies in the astounding diversity of art produced during this period.
