Further Biographical Context for Chang Lung-Yan
Chang Lung-Yan was born in 1909 and was largely influenced creatively by the 1920s growing up. Significant 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 solemnity following the horrors of the First World War. Major shifts in politics were happening worldwide, and Marxism took a strong grip as an ideology within artist groups and communities. The leading focus for art during this time was on Freudian theory and the human subconscious, and these ideas were best portrayed by artists including Salvador Dali, Giorgio de Chirico, Andre Breton, Rene Magritte and Paul Delvaux, whilst in Paris, artists such as Brancusi, Modigliani and Soutine developed methods of art which were expressive and dynamic.
