Further Biographical Context for Cao Qiupu
Cao Qiupu was born in 1895 and was primarily influenced by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an time of experimentation, with artists delving into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These developments inspired artist communities and collectives on an international scale, with many groups exploring different methods of communicating their ideas. After the First World War, artists began 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 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 first developed by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
