Further Biographical Context for Alvar Carillo Gil
Alvar Carillo Gil was born in 1898 and was predominantly influenced creatively by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the energetic development of visual and pictorial art. These years were an time of experimentation, with artists exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations took hold with artist communities and collectives around the world, with many groups exploring a variety of ways of communicating their ideas. After the First World War, artists began to explore psychological applications of art in response to the horrors they had witnessed. Dadaism, an absurdist movement inspired directly by the events of the war, spread to a number of countries across Europe and began the careers of renowned 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 initially developed by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
