Further Biographical Context for Léon Moret
Born in 1890, Léon Moret 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 investigating Expressionism and Abstraction. Many different collectives and communities of artists across the globe developed different ways of articulating these crucial innovations. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, under the leadership of Piet Mondrian, began to practice important theories concerning Abstraction. Alongside this, Kasimir Malevich and his contemporaries developed Constructivism and Suprematism in the Soviet Union. These pioneering styles of art were rigorous and politicised, and looked to serve a new world order.
