Further Biographical Context for Chen Baihe
Born in 1893, Chen Baihe's creative work was predominantly inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The vigorous development of pictorial art defined the first decades of the twentieth century. It was an era of experimentation and post-Impressionism, with artists first delving into Expressionism and Abstraction. Many different collectives and groups of artists across the world developed many ways of expressing these crucial innovations. The psychological applications of art began to be further explored and developed following the horrors of the WWI. Dadaism, a nonsensical and absurdist movement inspired directly by the war, appeared in Paris, Berlin, Zurich and Hannover, and launched the careers of artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Hannah Höch and Kurt Schwitters. The vital philosophies behind Dadaism would go on to find ground in Surrealism, which was the first art movement to fully incorporate psychology and ideas about the subconscious, and took great inspiration from the work of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung.
