Further Biographical Context for George Sanders Bickerstaff
Born in 1893, George Sanders Bickerstaff's creative work was predominantly influenced 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 investigating Expressionism and Abstraction. A variety of collectives and communities of artists across the world evolved many ways of expressing these crucial innovations. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, under the leadership of Piet Mondrian, began to practice pioneering theories about Abstraction. Alongside this, Kasimir Malevich and his contemporaries developed Constructivism and Suprematism in the Soviet Union. These revolutionary styles of art were demanding and politicised, and looked to serve a new world order.
