Further Biographical Context for Ellen Auerbach
Born in 1906, Ellen Auerbach's creative work was largely inspired by the 1920s. The key innovations established in the early years of the 20th century were matured further in the 1920s and 1930s. This period established 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 major shifts in politics took place internationally. The philosophy of Marxism was prevalent among artist communities and groups. Founded in 1919, the Bauhaus became a vital place for the development of ideas concerning the unification of art, craft and design – an idea which became known as the Gesamtkunstwerk.
