Further Biographical Context for Ami-Ferdinand Duplain
Ami-Ferdinand Duplain was born in 1893 and was primarily inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the vibrant development of visual and pictorial art. These years 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 around the world, with many groups developing a variety of methods of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists endeavoured to explore psychological uses of art in response to the horrors they had experienced. Dadaism, an absurdist movement influenced directly by the events of the war, spread to many countries across Europe and established the careers of well known 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.
