Further Biographical Context for Marcel Chabas-Chigny
Marcel Chabas-Chigny was born in 1890 and was primarily influenced creatively by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first major Post-impressionism movement in the first years of the twentieth century is generally considered to be the Fauves, a group for whom intense, other-worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were a key component of painting, and who counted Henri Matisse among their numbers. In Paris during the same time, a young Pablo Picasso painted his famed Blue and Rose periods. By the end of the 1920s, along with Georges Braque, he had developed the first fracturing of illustrative reality with Analytical Cubism. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be viewed to be among the most fruitful, and are noted as the time in art history when modern and modernist ideas first took hold of cultural production. The new order and rationality, alongside mechanisation in modes of production, saw art’s parallel discipline of architecture develop at an astonishing rate in the work of designers such as Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. It was the era of the Bauhaus and the idea of a common discipline amongst all the creative arts. Most, if not all, of the significant art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be seen to source many of their essential founding principles in the incredible diversity of work produced during this period.
