Further Biographical Context for Fritz Huber
Fritz Huber was born in 1894 and grew up during the 1900s and 1910s and was inspired by the artistic culture of the time. The Fauves are generally considered to be the first foremost Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning of the twentieth century. With artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that intense, other worldly colours and energetic brushstrokes were a key component of their work. 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 initial 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 productive, and are viewed 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 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 significant art movements that we associate with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of work produced during this era.
