Further Biographical Context for Eric Arnold Roberts Ennion
Born in 1900, Eric Arnold Roberts Ennion's creative work was predominantly inspired 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 time of experimentation, with artists delving into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations took hold with artist communities and collectives across the globe, with many groups exploring a variety of methods of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists started to explore psychological uses of art in response to the terrors they had experienced. Dadaism, an absurdist movement influenced directly by the events of the war, spread to many countries across Europe and began the careers of renowned 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.
