Further Biographical Context for Fidel Aguilar
Born in 1894, Fidel Aguilar's creative work was predominantly inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are widely considered to be the first foremost Post-Impressionist group, working in the at the start of the 20th century. With artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that vivid, other worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were a key 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 first ideas of portraying fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. The first twenty years of the twentieth century can be considered to be the most fruitful, and are viewed as the time in art history when modern and modernist philosophies 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 epitomised in the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. Bauhaus was predominant at this time and defined the idea of a common discipline across all types of creative art. Most, if not all, of the philosophies of important art movements that we associate with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of work produced during this time.
