Further Biographical Context for Leon Cano
Born in 1898, Leon Cano was primarily inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are widely considered to be the first foremost Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning of the 20th century. With artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that vivid, other worldly colours and energetic brushstrokes were a key component of their work. During this same time period a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his famous Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had established the initial ideas of depicting fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. In the meantime, Expressive painting was being further established and explored in various countries across the world. the Nabis in France were the first to delve into this movement at the start of the century, and German groups such as Die Brucke and Der Blaue Reiter soon followed suit, developing the careers of famous artists such as Kirchner, Franz Marc, and Wassily Kandinsky.
