Further Biographical Context for José Marques Campao
Born in 1891, José Marques Campao's creative work was primarily influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an era of experimentation, with artists delving into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations took hold with artist communities and collectives across the globe, with many groups developing different methods of communicating 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 influenced directly by the events of the war, spread to many countries across Europe and established 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 developed by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
