Further Biographical Context for Fritz Hammargren
Born in 1892, Fritz Hammargren was primarily influenced by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the vibrant development of visual and pictorial art. These years were an era of experimentation, with artists exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations inspired artist communities and collectives on an international scale, with many groups developing a variety of methods of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists began to explore psychological applications of art in response to the horrors they had witnessed. Dadaism, an absurdist movement inspired directly by the events of the war, spread to a number of countries across Europe and established the careers of renowned 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 established by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
