Further Biographical Context for Zygmunt Bartkiewicz
Born in 1897, Zygmunt Bartkiewicz grew up during the 1900s and 1910s and was influenced by the artistic culture of the time. The Fauves are widely considered to be the first major Post-Impressionist group, working in the beginning of the twentieth century. Including artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that intense, other worldly colours and energetic brushstrokes were an integral component of painting. At the same time, a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his famed Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had established the initial ideas of depicting fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. The De Stijl group in the Netherlands, under the leadership of Piet Mondrian, began to practice pioneering theories concerning Abstraction. Alongside this, Kasimir Malevich and his contemporaries developed Constructivism and Suprematism in the Soviet Union. These revolutionary styles of art were rigorous and politicised, and looked to serve a new world order.
