Further Biographical Context for Henri-Eugene Brochet
Born in 1898, Henri-Eugene Brochet was predominantly inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are generally considered to be the first foremost Post-Impressionist group, working in the at the start of the 20th century. Including artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that vivid, other worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were a key component of their work. During this same time period a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his famed Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had established the initial ideas of depicting fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, under the leadership of Piet Mondrian, started to practice important theories concerning Abstraction. Alongside this, Kasimir Malevich and his contemporaries developed Constructivism and Suprematism in the Soviet Union. These pioneering styles of art were demanding and politicised, and looked to serve a new world order.
