Further Biographical Context for Gladys E. Calthrop
Gladys E. Calthrop was born in 1894 and was predominantly influenced by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The Fauves are widely considered to be the first major Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning of the 20th century. With artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that vivid, other worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were an integral component of painting. During this same time period a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his famous Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had developed 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 looking to capture the rapidity and dynamism of the machine age, in a movement named Futurism.
