Further Biographical Context for Candida Amélia De Jesus Cunha Batista
Candida Amélia De Jesus Cunha Batista was born in 1927 and was primarily inspired by the 1950s growing up. Abstract Expressionism, a form of painting that explored ideas of spirituality and the sublime, dominated the 1950s. A number of artists focused on the formal properties of painting, and action painting was influenced by the political freedom of the United States, in opposition to the strict strictures of the Soviet bloc. Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Frank Kline, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Adolph Gottlieb were influential artists of this time. The male dominated environment has been subsequently revisited to acknowledge the contributions of female artists such as Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, and Louise Bourgeois, amongst others.
