Further Biographical Context for Karl Meyer-Nieting
Born in 1900, Karl Meyer-Nieting grew up during the 1900s and 1910s and was inspired by the artistic atmosphere of the time. 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 vivid, other worldly colours and energetic brushstrokes were an integral component of painting. At the same time, a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his famed Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had developed the first ideas of depicting fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. In Italy, artists like Boccioni, Severini and Balla were hoping to capture the rapidity and dynamism of the machine age, in a movement named Futurism.
