Historical Context of France
France has been an important nation in the unfolding of modernism. During the nineteenth century, France fostered the beginnings of what is currently known as the avant-garde, including movements such as Impressionism, Post-Impressionism and Art Nouveau, led by critically acclaimed artists. During the first part of the twentieth century, Paris was an essential intellectual and cultural centre, establishing vital movements such as Cubism, Fauvism, Dadaism and Surrealism, amongst others. These movements emerged at the beginning of the century, in the period immediately preceding the Second World War. Dominant French artistic figures from the beginning of the century include Paul Cezanne, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque (Spanish national who settled in France) Francis Picabia, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, and Le Corbusier amidst many of others.
Further Biographical Context for Raymond Waydelich
Raymond Waydelich was born in 1938 and was largely influenced by the 1950s. Abstract Expressionism, a form of painting that studied notions of spirituality and the sublime, dominated the 1950s. A number of artists focused on the formal properties of painting, and action painting was influenced by the political freedom of the United States, as opposed to the strict nature of the Soviet bloc. Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Frank Kline, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Adolph Gottlieb were predominant artists of this period. The male dominated environment has been subsequently revised to acknowledge the contributions of female artists such as Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, and Louise Bourgeois, amongst others.
