Further Biographical Context for Jadwiga Cetîc
Born in 1906, Jadwiga Cetîc's creative work was primarily inspired by the 1920s. Significant artistic developments that had been established in the earlier part of the 20th century continued to be developed during the 1920s and 1930s. During this period the careers of a number of influential and pioneering artists began to flourish, yet at the same time there was an atmosphere of consideration and solemnity following the horrors of the First World War. Significant shifts in politics were happening worldwide, and Marxism took a strong grip as an ideology amongst artist groups and communities. Due to its cultural significance, Surrealism spread as an philosophy on an international scale, and became the most prominent theme of the pictorial arts in the 1920s. The Bauhaus movement developed during this time and concentrated on a unification of all modes of art, working towards the idea of the ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’. The liberal politics of the Weimar Republic in Germany empowered this movement to blossom and flourish and develop further.
