Further Biographical Context for Miriam Thomas Mccrary
Miriam Thomas Mccrary was born in 1894 and was predominantly influenced 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. With artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that intense, other worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were a key component of painting. At the same time, a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his famed Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had developed the initial ideas of portraying fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. In Italy, artists such as Boccioni, Severini and Balla were looking to capture the rapidity and dynamism of the machine age, in a movement named Futurism.
