Further Biographical Context for Jan Alster
Jan Alster was born in 1892 and was largely influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are widely considered to be the first foremost Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning of the 20th century. Including artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that intense, other worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were an integral component of their work. 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 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, began to practice pioneering theories about 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.
