Further Biographical Context for Florence Humphrey
Florence Humphrey was born in 1905 and was largely inspired creatively by the 1920s. The notable innovations established in the early years of the 20th century were developed further in the 1920s and 1930s. This period began the careers of many radical and inspiring practitioners in the pictorial arts. However it was a period of reflection following the horrors of the First World War, and significant shifts in politics took place across the world. 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 surrounding the unification of art, craft and design – an idea which became known as the Gesamtkunstwerk.
