Further Biographical Context for Katherine Gibson Morton
Born in 1895, Katherine Gibson Morton was primarily influenced 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 globe developed different ways of articulating these crucial innovations. The first twenty years of the 20th century can be considered to be the most fruitful, and are noted as the period in art history when modern and modernist philosophies initially began to take hold culturally. Mechanisation in production and ideas of order and rationality ensured the discipline of architecture to develop at an astounding rate, and was epitomised in the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. Bauhaus was prevalent at this time and defined the idea of a common discipline across all modes of creative art. Most, if not all, of the ideologies of important art movements that we associate with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of work made during this era.
