Further Biographical Context for Isidoro Guinea Zuazaga

Isidoro Guinea Zuazaga was born in 1893 and was largely inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These years were an time of experimentation, with artists exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These developments inspired artist communities and collectives around the world, with many groups exploring different methods of communicating their ideas. After the First World War, artists began to explore psychological applications of art in response to the terrors they had experienced. Dadaism, an absurdist movement influenced 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 initially established by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
