On the way to the 20th century, a multifaceted art scene has developed in Europe. Increasing mobility had led to a lively exchange, which brought innovative impulses to painting on the continent and was associated with the turning away from classic methods of representation. The British artist world was not impressed by this development. In earlier epochs, British artist groups were self-confident and developed their own style. The industrialization advanced in England triggered a return to the craft and called the arts-and-craft movement into life. Roger Eliot Fry was born into a conservative social class and lived a privileged life with an education at the best schools in the country. In addition to painting for pleasure, Fry, as an art critic, focused on the art of the old masters. A trip to France and the encounter with the art of the Impressionists set a turning point in the artist's life. The works of Cézanne , Gauguin , Matisse and van Gogh inspired Fry and changed his views on art and aesthetics.

In France, the Impressionists had changed painting and brought lightness and joie de vivre to the canvas. In the final phase of the era in particular, a play of light and color had developed that excited Fry. Fry tried to establish the new way of painting in England. With the exhibition Manet and the Post-Impressionists, the artist met with a lot of criticism in society. The works were far too far from the British understanding of art. Fry organized a second exhibition and combined English painting with the works of Matisse and Picasso and again the English art scene did not want to take the path to modern painting.

Roger Eliot Fry, on the other hand, was completely absorbed in the new possibilities of painting. He concentrated on his own painting and became a pioneer of modernism in England. Roger Eliot Fry joined the liberal Bloomsbury group and became one of the initiators. As an artist, he never abandoned the theoretical approach to painting. As a painter, he attached great importance to the form and content of a painting. Composition and color should express feelings and ideas and Fry supported the turning away from the realistic representation and the real perspective. The development of expressive painting can be clearly seen in both the portraits of the artist and the landscapes. River landscapes appear detached from color and space. Gone are the days of pure portraits that show people in an illusion. It is thanks to his persistence that the taste of the English art scene has changed and has left a great legacy for avant-garde art. © Meisterdrucke
