Further Biographical Context for Adam Baltatu
Adam Baltatu was born in 1899 and was predominantly influenced creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the energetic 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 exploring different ways of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists endeavoured to explore psychological applications of art in response to the terrors they had witnessed. Dadaism, an absurdist movement inspired directly by the events of the war, spread to a number of countries across Europe and established the careers of famous artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Hannah Höch and Kurt Schwitters. The movement of Surrealism, inspired by ideas concerning psychology and the subconscious which were first developed by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
