Further Biographical Context for Carmelo Comes

Born in 1905, Carmelo Comes was predominantly influenced by the 1920s growing up. Important artistic innovations that had been established in the earlier part of the 20th century continued to be worked on during the 1920s and 1930s. During this period the careers of many inspiring and pioneering artists began to blossom, yet at the same time there was an atmosphere of consideration and sombreness following the horrors of the First World War. Significant shifts in politics were taking place worldwide, and Marxism took a strong grip as an ideology within artist groups and communities. Due to its cultural significance, Surrealism spread as an philosophy on an international scale, and became the most prominent theme of the pictorial arts in the 1920s. The Bauhaus movement developed during this time and concentrated on a unification of all modes of art, working towards the idea of the ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’. The liberal politics of the Weimar Republic in Germany enabled this movement to blossom and flourish and develop further.
