Further Biographical Context for Gwen Emily Cuthbert
Gwen Emily Cuthbert was born in 1892 and was largely influenced by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by dynamic advances in pictorial art. It was the era of post-Impressionism and of experimentation, including the first ventures into Expressionism and Abstraction. Many different groups of artists or loosely associated communities of the avant-garde in different major cities around the world developed different modes of these key innovations. The horrors of the First World War spawned important developments in the psychological intentions of art, including the absurdist stylings of Dadaism which materialised 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 first art movement to fully incorporate psychology, and in particular ideas about the unconscious which had been established by Sigmund Freud and his disciple Carl Jung.
