Further Biographical Context for Fritz Leopold Hennig
Fritz Leopold Hennig was born in 1895 and was primarily inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are widely 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 vibrant brushstrokes were an integral component of painting. 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 initial ideas of portraying fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. In Italy, artists including Boccioni, Severini and Balla were hoping to capture the rapidity and dynamism of the machine age, in a movement called Futurism.
