Further Biographical Context for Louis Dürr
Born in 1896, Louis Dürr's creative work was largely inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the energetic development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an time of experimentation, with artists delving into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations took hold with artist communities and collectives on an international scale, with many groups developing a variety of ways of expressing their ideas. The first twenty years of the twentieth century are viewed as the period in art history where modernist and modern ideas initially began to have cultural influence. They were a prolific time in the art world, and industrial advances such as mechanisation led to other disciplines like architecture, led by the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld, to grow at an equally high rate. The idea of a common discipline across all modes of art was epitomised in the Bauhaus movement, which became a prevalent way of thinking about art. These philosophies that we associate today with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of artworks produced during this period.
