Further Biographical Context for François Desnoyer
François Desnoyer was born in 1894 and was largely inspired by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by vibrant 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 associated communities of the avant-garde in a number of major cities around the world evolved different modes of these key innovations. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be considered 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 like Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. It was the era of the Bauhaus and the idea of a common discipline across all modes of creative arts. Most, if not all, of the significant art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be viewed to source many of their essential founding principles in the incredible diversity of art produced during this time.
