Further Biographical Context for Luis Mosquera Gomez
Born in 1899, Luis Mosquera Gomez' creative work was largely inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These years were an time of experimentation, with artists exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These developments took hold with artist communities and collectives across the globe, with many groups exploring different ways of communicating their ideas. The first twenty years of the twentieth century are viewed as the period in art history where modernist and modern ideas first began to have cultural effects. They were a prolific time in the art world, and industrial advances such as mechanisation led to other disciplines such as architecture, led by the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld, to develop 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.
