Further Biographical Context for Gladys Lewis Bush
Gladys Lewis Bush was born in 1897 and was primarily influenced creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The first major Post-impressionism movement in the beginning of the twentieth century is generally considered to be the Fauves, a group for whom vivid, other-worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were a key component of painting, and who counted Henri Matisse as a member. In Paris at the same time, a young Pablo Picasso painted his famous Blue and Rose periods. By the end of the 1920s, along with Georges Braque, he had developed the first fracturing of pictorial reality with Analytical Cubism. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be viewed to be among the most fruitful, and are noted as the time in art history when modern and modernist ideas first took hold of cultural production. The new order and rationality, alongside mechanisation in modes of production, saw art’s parallel discipline of architecture develop at an astonishing rate 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 across all modes of creative arts. Most, if not all, of the key art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be seen to source many of their key founding philosophies in the incredible diversity of work produced during this period.
