Further Biographical Context for George Humbert Cuneo

George Humbert Cuneo was born in 1898 and was predominantly influenced creatively 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 groups of artists across the world evolved different ways of articulating these crucial innovations. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, led by the teachings of Piet Mondrian, began to practice pioneering theories concerning Abstraction. Alongside this, Kasimir Malevich and his contemporaries developed Constructivism and Suprematism in the Soviet Union. These revolutionary styles of art were rigorous and politicised, and looked to serve a new world order.
