George Charles Diestel was born in 1898 and grew up during the 1900s and 1910s and was inspired by the artistic culture of the time. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the energetic development of visual and pictorial art. These years were an time of experimentation, with artists exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations took hold with artist communities and collectives across the globe, with many groups exploring a variety of ways of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists began to explore psychological applications of art in response to the terrors 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 established by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
