Further Biographical Context for Chen Fengke
Born in 1895, Chen Fengke was largely inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. 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 exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations inspired artist communities and collectives across the globe, with many groups developing a variety of methods of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists began to explore psychological applications of art in response to the terrors they had witnessed. Dadaism, an absurdist movement influenced directly by the events of the war, spread to many countries across Europe and established the careers of well known 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 initially established by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
