Further Biographical Context for Peter Menzel-Sand
Peter Menzel-Sand was born in 1894 and was primarily influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are generally considered to be the first foremost Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning of the twentieth century. With artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that intense, other worldly colours and energetic brushstrokes were an integral component of painting. During this same time period 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 established the first ideas of depicting fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, under the leadership of Piet Mondrian, started to practice pioneering theories about Abstraction. Alongside this, Kasimir Malevich and his contemporaries developed Constructivism and Suprematism in the Soviet Union. These radical styles of art were demanding and politicised, and looked to serve a new world order.
