Further Biographical Context for Émile Bandoux

Born in 1908, Émile Bandoux was predominantly influenced by the 1920s. Key artistic developments that had been established in the earlier part of the 20th century continued to be matured during the 1920s and 1930s. During this period the careers of a number of influential and pioneering artists began to blossom, yet at the same time there was an atmosphere of consideration and sombreness following the horrors of the First World War. Major shifts in politics were taking place worldwide, and Marxism took a strong hold as an ideology amongst artist groups and communities. The leading focus for art at the time was on Freudian theory and the human subconscious, and these ideas were best portrayed by artists including Salvador Dali, Giorgio de Chirico, Andre Breton, Rene Magritte and Paul Delvaux, whilst in Paris, artists such as Brancusi, Modigliani and Soutine established methods of art which were vivid and dynamic.
