Further Biographical Context for George Cukor
George Cukor was born in 1899 and was primarily inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The vigorous development of pictorial art defined the first decades of the twentieth century. It was an era of experimentation and post-Impressionism, with artists first delving into Expressionism and Abstraction. A variety of collectives and groups of artists across the globe evolved different ways of articulating these crucial innovations. The psychological uses of art began to be further explored and developed following the terrors of the First World War. Dadaism, a nonsensical and absurdist movement inspired directly by the war, developed in Paris, Berlin, Zurich and Hannover, and launched the careers of artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Hannah Höch and Kurt Schwitters. The vital philosophies behind Dadaism would go on to find ground in Surrealism, which was the first art movement to fully integrate psychology and ideas about the subconscious, and took great inspiration from the work of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung.
