Further Biographical Context for Fannye Caswell
Fannye Caswell was born in 1896 and was predominantly influenced by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by dynamic developments in pictorial art. It was the era of post-Impressionism and of experimentation, including the first forays into Expressionism and Abstraction. Many different groups of artists or loosely associated communities of the avant-garde in different major cities around the world evolved many modes of these significant innovations. The horrors of the First World War spawned significant developments in the psychological applications of art, including the absurdist stylings of Dadaism which arose in Paris, Berlin, Zurich and Hannover, and which brought recognition for artists like Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Hannah Höch and Kurt Schwitters. Many of these ideas would go on to flourish further in Surrealism - the first art movement to fully incorporate psychology, and in particular ideas about the unconscious which had been established by Sigmund Freud and his follower Carl Jung.
