Further Biographical Context for Gustav Grommelynck
Gustav Grommelynck was born in 1895 and was primarily influenced by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by lively advances in pictorial art. It was the era of post-Impressionism and of experimentation, including the first forays into Expressionism and Abstraction. Many different groups of artists or loosely affiliated communities of the avant-garde in a number of major cities around the world evolved a variety of modes of these key innovations. The horrors of the First World War spawned significant developments in the psychological intentions of art, including the absurdist stylings of Dadaism which appeared in Paris, Berlin, Zurich and Hannover, and which brought recognition for artists like Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Hannah Höch and Kurt Schwitters. Many of these ideas would go on to flourish further in Surrealism - the primary art movement to fully incorporate psychology, and in particular ideas about the unconscious which had been developed by Sigmund Freud and his follower Carl Jung.
