Further Biographical Context for Erling Clausen

Born in 1893, Erling Clausen grew up during the 1900s and 1910s and was influenced by the artistic culture of the time. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the vibrant development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an time of experimentation, with artists exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These developments took hold with artist communities and collectives across the globe, with many groups developing a variety of ways of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists endeavoured to explore psychological applications of art in response to the terrors they had witnessed. Dadaism, an absurdist movement influenced directly by the events of the war, spread to many countries across Europe and established the careers of well known 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 initially established by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
