Further Biographical Context for Fritz Haberkorn
Fritz Haberkorn was born in 1898 and was largely inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The first major Post-impressionism movement in the early years of the twentieth century is generally considered to be the Fauves, a group for whom vivid, other-worldly colours and vibrant brushstrokes were a key component of painting, and who counted Henri Matisse among their numbers. In Paris at the same time, a young Pablo Picasso painted his renowned Blue and Rose periods. By the end of the 1920s, along with Georges Braque, he had developed the first fracturing of pictorial reality with Analytical Cubism. The horrors of the First World War hatched significant developments in the psychological uses of art, including the absurdist stylings of Dadaism which sprung up 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 developed by Sigmund Freud and his disciple Carl Jung.
