Further Biographical Context for Georg Hambüchen
Born in 1901, Georg Hambüchen grew up during the 1920s and was inspired by the artistic culture of the time. Key artistic developments that had been established in the earlier part of the 20th century continued to be matured during the 1920s and 1930s. During this period the careers of a number of inspiring and pioneering artists began to flourish, yet at the same time there was an atmosphere of reflection and sombreness following the horrors of the First World War. Significant shifts in politics were taking place worldwide, and Marxism took a strong hold as an ideology within artist groups and communities. Due to its cultural significance, Surrealism spread as an ideology on an international scale, and became the most prominent theme of the pictorial arts in the 1920s. The Bauhaus movement developed during this time and focused on a unification of all modes of art, working towards the idea of the ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’. The liberal politics of the Weimar Republic in Germany enabled this movement to blossom and grow and develop further.
