Further Biographical Context for Ghitta Carell

Ghitta Carell was born in 1899 and was largely inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The vigorous 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 groups of artists across the world developed different ways of articulating these crucial innovations. The first twenty years of the twentieth century can be viewed to be the most prolific, and are noted as the era in art history when modern and modernist philosophies first 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 at this time and defined the idea of a common discipline across all sectors of creative art. Most, if not all, of the ideologies 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.
