Further Biographical Context for Hermann Wilhelm Brellochs
Born in 1899, Hermann Wilhelm Brellochs was predominantly influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the vibrant development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an time of experimentation, with artists exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These developments took hold with artist communities and collectives on an international scale, with many groups developing a variety of ways of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists began to explore psychological applications of art in response to the horrors they had experienced. Dadaism, an absurdist movement inspired directly by the events of the war, spread to many countries across Europe and began the careers of renowned 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 initially established by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
