Further Biographical Context for Juan Álvarez De Estrada

Juan Álvarez De Estrada was born in 1892 and was largely inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The vigorous development of pictorial art defined the first decades of the twentieth century. It was an era of experimentation and post-Impressionism, with artists first delving into Expressionism and Abstraction. A variety of collectives and groups of artists across the world developed many ways of expressing these crucial innovations. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, under the leadership of Piet Mondrian, started to practice important theories about 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.
