Further Biographical Context for Georges Hamel
Born in 1900, Georges Hamel was predominantly influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. 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 vivid, 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 famed Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had established the first ideas of portraying fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. In Italy, artists like Boccioni, Severini and Balla were hoping to capture the rapidity and dynamism of the machine age, in a movement called Futurism.
