Historical Context of Netherlands
In the post-Impressionist era, the dutch Vincent Van Gogh is considered among one of the most significant innovators, and is of course regarded as one of the greatest painters of all time, irrespective of the era. Willem de Kooning is also Dutch, although he emigrated to the United States in his youth and his work is most closely related to the New York City Abstract Expressionist era of the late 1940s and 1950s.
Further Biographical Context for Reinier Lucassen
Born in 1939, Reinier Lucassen was predominantly influenced by the 1950s growing up. In the Post-War period the lens of modernism was focused, in terms of internationally, on developments in New York City. The Second World War had brought many important artists to the city in exile from Europe, leading to a substantial pooling of talent and ideas. Important Europeans that came to New York and provided inspiration for American artists included Piet Mondrian, Josef Albers and Hans Hoffmann, who between them set the foundations for much of the United States’ explosive cultural growth in the decades thereafter. Important artists of the Abstract Expressionist Generation included Jackson Pollock (who innovated his famed drip, splatter and pour painting techniques), Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Frank Kline, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Adolph Gottlieb. It was a male dominated environment, but necessary revisionism of this period has emphasised the contributions of female artists such as Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, and Louise Bourgeois, amongst others.
