Further Biographical Context for Gerald Kenneth Geerlings
Gerald Kenneth Geerlings was born in 1897 and was primarily inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the vibrant development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an era of experimentation, with artists delving into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations took hold with artist communities and collectives around the world, with many groups exploring a variety of methods of communicating their ideas. Across the world, Expressive painting continued to be explored and developed in a number of countries. In France in the early 1900s, the Nabis delved into this movement, and were soon followed by German groups such as Die Brucke and Der Blaue Reiter. Through this movement the careers of some renowned artists such as Kirchner, Franz Marc, and Wassily Kandinsky were developed.
