Further Biographical Context for Grete Hagenkamp-Hartmann
Born in 1901, Grete Hagenkamp-Hartmann was predominantly inspired by the 1920s growing up. Key artistic innovations that had been established in the earlier part of the 20th century continued to be developed during the 1920s and 1930s. At this time the careers of a number of influential and pioneering artists began to blossom, yet at the same time there was an atmosphere of consideration and sombreness following the horrors of the First World War. Significant shifts in politics were happening worldwide, and Marxism took a strong hold as an ideology amongst artist groups and communities. The leading focus for art during this time was on Freudian theory and the human subconscious, and these ideas were best portrayed by artists including Salvador Dali, Giorgio de Chirico, Andre Breton, Rene Magritte and Paul Delvaux, whilst in Paris, artists such as Brancusi, Modigliani and Soutine developed methods of art which were expressive and dynamic.
