Further Biographical Context for Johan Coomans
Johan Coomans was born in 1896 and was largely inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an era of experimentation, with artists delving into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These developments took hold with artist communities and collectives around the world, with many groups exploring different methods of communicating their ideas. Across the world, Expressive painting continued to be explored and developed in many countries. In France in the early 1900s, the Nabis explored this movement, and were soon followed by German groups such as Die Brucke and Der Blaue Reiter. Through this movement the careers of some famous artists such as Kirchner, Franz Marc, and Wassily Kandinsky were developed.
