Further Biographical Context for Dorothy Dillingh Hoyt
Born in 1909, Dorothy Dillingh Hoyt's creative work was predominantly inspired by the 1920s. 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. At this time the careers of a number of influential and pioneering artists began to blossom, yet at the same time there was an atmosphere of reflection and sombreness following the horrors of the First World War. Major shifts in politics were happening worldwide, and Marxism took a strong hold as an ideology within artist groups and communities. Due to its cultural importance, Surrealism spread as an philosophy on an international scale, and became the leading 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.
