Further Biographical Context for Cornel Charell
Cornel Charell was born in 1894 and was primarily influenced creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the energetic development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an era of experimentation, with artists exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations inspired artist communities and collectives around the world, with many groups exploring a variety of ways of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists endeavoured to explore psychological uses of art in response to the horrors they had experienced. Dadaism, an absurdist movement inspired directly by the events of the war, spread to a number of countries across Europe and began the careers of famous 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 established by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
