Further Biographical Context for Luigi Amato
Luigi Amato was born in 1898 and was predominantly inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are generally 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 intense, other worldly colours and energetic brushstrokes were an integral 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 portraying fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. The first twenty years of the 20th century can be viewed to be the most productive, and are viewed as the era in art history when modern and modernist philosophies initially began to take hold culturally. Mechanisation in production and ideas of order and rationality enabled the discipline of architecture to develop at an extraordinary rate, and was defined by in the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. Bauhaus was prevalent during this era and defined the idea of a common discipline across all types of creative art. Most, if not all, of the philosophies of important art movements that we associate with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of work produced at this time.
