Historical Context of Spain

The influence of Spain was substantial in establishing the art of the twentieth century. Initially with his Blue then Rose phases, although he would eventually settle in to France in 1904, Picasso unfolded a truly expressive approach to figuration in the early 1900s, the era of post-Impressionism. Pablo Picasso is also thought to be the most influential founding member of Cubism, a major art movement in which he would also be joined by Spanish artist Juan Gris. Though they were established in France for the majority part of their respective artistic careers, Salvador Dali and Joan Miro were both highly prominent figures in the Surrealist movement. The political and cultural landscape of Spain during the twentieth century was governed by the totalitarian dictatorship of General Franco, whose regime subjugated the country from 1939 to 1975. His death induced a restoration of the monarchy to Juan-Carlos I, who thus reformed the State. The Franco dictatorship, characterised by an intense anti-communist position, led to the exodus of major intellectual and cultural figures, decided to escape this oppressive regime. The artistic and cultural blossoming of the avant-garde were deeply stirred by this situation, as liberal artistic movements are frequently significative of leftist penchants. Some highly influential modern and contemporary Spanish artists include Antoni Tapíes, Eduardo Chillida, Eduardo Arroyo and Manolo Valdes.

In Mexico, artists such as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera integrated a number of these ideas into their radical political ideologies to develop a new kind of magic realism.
