Further Biographical Context for Frantisek Mervart
Frantisek Mervart was born in 1898 and was primarily inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The dynamic development of pictorial art defined the first decades of the twentieth century. It was an era of experimentation and post-Impressionism, with artists first delving into Expressionism and Abstraction. A variety of collectives and communities of artists across the globe developed many ways of expressing these crucial innovations. The first twenty years of the twentieth century can be viewed to be the most productive, and are considered as the era in art history when modern and modernist ideas first 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 defined by in the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. Bauhaus was prevalent 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 key art movements that we associate with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of work produced during this era.
