Further Biographical Context for Elizabeth H. Healy
Elizabeth H. Healy was born in 1902 and was primarily influenced creatively by the 1920s. The notable innovations formed in the early years of the 20th century were matured further in the 1920s and 1930s. This period began the careers of many radical and inspiring practitioners in the pictorial arts. However it was a time of reflection following the horrors of the First World War, and significant shifts in politics took place internationally. The philosophy of Marxism was widespread among artist communities and groups. In Paris, artists such as Brancusi, Modigliani and Soutine established methods of art which were expressive and dynamic. Surrealism continued to mature in the 1920s and 1930s, and focused on the human unconscious and Freudian theory. Important artists to arise from this movement were Salvador Dali, Giorgio de Chirico, Andre Breton, Rene Magritte and Paul Delvaux. Surrealism spread as an ideology worldwide due to its cultural importance, and developed to become the key expressive mode of the 1920s. It was aided by the liberal characteristics of Weimar Republic in Germany, and blossomed under this way of thinking.
