Further Biographical Context for Paul Blucher

Born in 1891, Paul Blucher was predominantly influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are generally considered to be the first major Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning of the twentieth century. Including artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that vivid, 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 depicting fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. At the same time, Expressive painting was being developed and explored in various places across the world. the Nabis in France were the first to truly explore this movement at the start of the century, and German groups such as Die Brucke and Der Blaue Reiter soon followed suit, developing the careers of renowned artists such as Kirchner, Franz Marc, and Wassily Kandinsky.
