Further Biographical Context for Robert Mayer
Robert Mayer was born in 1899 and was predominantly inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an era of experimentation, with artists exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations took hold with artist communities and collectives across the globe, with many groups developing different ways of communicating their ideas. The first twenty years of the twentieth century are considered as the period in art history where modernist and modern ideas initially began to have cultural effects. They were a prolific time in the art world, and industrial advances such as mechanisation led to other disciplines like architecture, led by the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld, to develop at an equally high rate. The idea of a shared discipline across all modes of art was epitomised in the Bauhaus movement, which became a leading way of thinking about art. These philosophies that we associate today with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of artworks produced at this time.
