Further Biographical Context for Pleasant Ray Mac Intosh
Pleasant Ray Mac Intosh was born in 1897 and was predominantly influenced creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. 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 many modes of these key 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 first took hold of cultural production. The new order and rationality, alongside mechanisation in modes of production, saw art’s parallel discipline of architecture develop at an astonishing rate 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 all modes of creative arts. Most, if not all, of the core art movements we associate with modern and contemporary art can be seen to source many of their crucial founding philosophies in the incredible diversity of work produced during this period.
