Further Biographical Context for Franciszka Chojnacka-Wadolowska

Born in 1897, Franciszka Chojnacka-Wadolowska was largely influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are widely considered to be the first major Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning of the 20th century. With artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that vivid, other worldly colours and energetic brushstrokes were a key component of painting. At the same time, a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his renowned 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 20th century can be viewed to be the most fruitful, and are noted as the time in art history when modern and modernist ideas initially began to take hold culturally. Mechanisation in production and ideas of order and rationality enabled the discipline of architecture to develop at an extraordinary 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 modes of creative art. Most, if not all, of the philosophies of significant art movements that we associate with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of work made at this time.
