Further Biographical Context for John Paul Mchugh

John Paul Mchugh was born in 1895 and was largely influenced by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The Fauves are widely considered to be the first foremost Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning of the twentieth century. Including artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that vivid, other worldly colours and energetic brushstrokes were a key component of painting. During this same time period a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his renowned Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had developed 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, led by the teachings of Piet Mondrian, began to practice pioneering theories concerning Abstraction. Alongside this, Kasimir Malevich and his contemporaries developed Constructivism and Suprematism in the Soviet Union. These revolutionary styles of art were rigorous and politicised, and looked to serve a new world order.
