Further Biographical Context for Peter Mccallion
Peter Mccallion was born in 1890 and was predominantly influenced creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These years were an time of experimentation, with artists delving into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations inspired 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 viewed as the period in art history where modernist and modern ideas first began to have cultural effects. They were a prolific time in the art world, and industrial advances such as mechanisation led to other disciplines such as 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 prevalent 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 at this time.
