Further Biographical Context for Pieter Van Den Brug
Pieter Van Den Brug was born in 1897 and was primarily influenced by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by lively developments in pictorial art. It was the era of post-Impressionism and of experimentation, including the first forays into Expressionism and Abstraction. Many different groups of artists or loosely affiliated communities of the avant-garde in different major cities around the world developed different modes of these significant innovations. The first twenty years of the Twentieth Century can be considered to be among the most productive, and are noted as the time in art history when modern and modernist ideas began to take hold of cultural production. The new order and rationality, alongside mechanisation in modes of production, saw art’s parallel discipline of architecture develop extraordinarily in the work of designers like Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. It was the era of the Bauhaus and the idea of a common discipline across the creative arts as a whole. Most, if not all, of the significant art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be seen to source many of their key founding principles in the astounding diversity of work produced during this time.
