Further Biographical Context for Oscar Antonsson
Born in 1898, Oscar Antonsson was primarily influenced by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The Fauves are generally considered to be the first foremost Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning of the twentieth century. Including artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that intense, other worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were an integral component of painting. During this same time period a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his renowned Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had developed the first ideas of portraying fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. At the same time, Expressive painting was being further established and explored in various countries across the world. the Nabis in France were the first to delve into this movement at the turn of the century, and German groups such as Die Brucke and Der Blaue Reiter soon followed suit, developing the careers of legendary artists such as Kirchner, Franz Marc, and Wassily Kandinsky.
