Further Biographical Context for Germaine Marguerite De Coster
Born in 1895, Germaine Marguerite De Coster grew up during the 1900s and 1910s and was inspired by the artistic culture of the time. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an era of experimentation, with artists exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These developments inspired artist communities and collectives on an international scale, with many groups developing different methods of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists endeavoured to explore psychological uses of art in response to the horrors they had witnessed. Dadaism, an absurdist movement inspired directly by the events of the war, spread to many countries across Europe and began 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.
