Further Biographical Context for Pierre Bourut
Born in 1899, Pierre Bourut was primarily influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The vigorous development of pictorial art defined the first decades of the twentieth century. It was an era of experimentation and post-Impressionism, with artists first investigating Expressionism and Abstraction. A variety of collectives and communities of artists across the globe developed different ways of articulating these crucial innovations. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, under the leadership of Piet Mondrian, started to practice important theories concerning 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.
