Further Biographical Context for Margaretha Barth-Visscher Van Gaasbeek
Margaretha Barth-Visscher Van Gaasbeek was born in 1899 and was largely influenced creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the vibrant 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 on an international scale, with many groups exploring different ways of communicating their ideas. The first twenty years of the twentieth century are considered as the period in art history where modernist and modern ideas first 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 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 leading 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.
