Further Biographical Context for Jelena Mandicova
Born in 1902, Jelena Mandicova was predominantly influenced 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. At this time the careers of a number of inspiring 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 taking place worldwide, and Marxism took a strong hold as an ideology amongst artist groups and communities. Due to its cultural importance, Surrealism spread as an ideology on an international scale, and became the leading theme of the pictorial arts in the 1920s. The Bauhaus movement developed during this time and focused 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 grow and develop further.
