Further Biographical Context for George Morrison R. Henry
George Morrison R. Henry was born in 1891 and was largely inspired 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. Many different collectives and groups of artists across the globe developed many ways of expressing these crucial innovations. The first twenty years of the 20th century can be viewed to be the most productive, and are considered as the period in art history when modern and modernist ideas initially began to take hold culturally. Mechanisation in production and ideas of order and rationality enabled the discipline of architecture to develop at an astounding rate, and was defined by in the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. Bauhaus was predominant during this era and defined the idea of a common discipline across all types of creative art. Most, if not all, of the philosophies of important art movements that we associate with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of work made during this time.
