Further Biographical Context for John Allan Carroll
John Allan Carroll was born in 1892 and was predominantly inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the energetic 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 innovations inspired artist communities and collectives on an international scale, with many groups developing a variety of methods of communicating their ideas. After the First World War, artists started to explore psychological applications of art in response to the terrors they had experienced. Dadaism, an absurdist movement inspired directly by the events of the war, spread to a number of 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 first developed by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
