Further Biographical Context for Géza Hetzer
Born in 1895, Géza Hetzer's creative work was largely inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by vibrant advances in pictorial art. It was the era of post-Impressionism and of experimentation, including the first forays into Expressionism and Abstraction. Many different groups of artists or loosely associated communities of the avant-garde in a number of major cities around the world developed different modes of these significant innovations. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be considered to be among the most fruitful, and are noted as the time in art history when modern and modernist ideas began to take hold of cultural production. The new order and rationality, alongside mechanisation in modes of production, saw art’s parallel discipline of architecture develop extraordinarily in the work of designers such as Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. It was the era of the Bauhaus and the idea of a common discipline amongst the creative arts as a whole. Most, if not all, of the core art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be seen to source many of their crucial founding ideologies in the astounding diversity of work produced during this time.
