Further Biographical Context for Bernard Casson

Born in 1900, Bernard Casson's creative work was predominantly influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the vibrant development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an era of experimentation, with artists delving into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations took hold with artist communities and collectives on an international scale, with many groups exploring a variety of methods of communicating their ideas. After the First World War, artists started 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 a number of countries across Europe and began 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 established by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
