Further Biographical Context for Jeppe Madsen-Ohlsen
Born in 1891, Jeppe Madsen-Ohlsen was primarily influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by vibrant developments in pictorial art. It was the era of post-Impressionism and of experimentation, including the first ventures into Expressionism and Abstraction. Many different groups of artists or loosely affiliated communities of the avant-garde in different major cities around the world developed different modes of these key innovations. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be seen to be among the most fruitful, and are noted as the time in art history when modern and modernist ideas began to take 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 like Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. It was the era of the Bauhaus and the idea of a common discipline amongst the creative arts as a whole. Most, if not all, of the significant art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be seen to source many of their essential founding ideologies in the astounding diversity of art produced during this time.
