Further Biographical Context for George Catargi
George Catargi was born in 1894 and was largely inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the energetic 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 took hold with artist communities and collectives on an international scale, with many groups developing different methods of communicating 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 influenced directly by the events of the war, spread to many countries across Europe and began the careers of famous 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 initially established by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
