Further Biographical Context for Santos Balmori
Santos Balmori was born in 1898 and was primarily influenced creatively by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The vigorous development of pictorial art defined the first decades of the twentieth century. It was an era of experimentation and post-Impressionism, with artists first delving into Expressionism and Abstraction. A variety of collectives and groups of artists across the world developed different ways of articulating these crucial innovations. The first twenty years of the 20th century can be considered to be the most fruitful, and are noted as the time in art history when modern and modernist ideas first began to take hold culturally. Mechanisation in production and ideas of order and rationality enabled the discipline of architecture to develop at an extraordinary rate, and was epitomised in the work of Le Corbusier and Gerrit Rietveld. Bauhaus was predominant during this era and defined the idea of a common discipline across all sectors of creative art. Most, if not all, of the philosophies of key art movements that we associate with modern and contemporary art can be traced back to the diverse range of work produced at this time.
