Further Biographical Context for Frederick Carlton
Born in 1895, Frederick Carlton was predominantly influenced by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the twentieth 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 developments took hold with artist communities and collectives across the globe, with many groups developing different methods of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists endeavoured to explore psychological uses of art in response to the horrors they had witnessed. Dadaism, an absurdist movement inspired 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 first developed by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
