Further Biographical Context for Jurij Czerkasow
Jurij Czerkasow was born in 1900 and was largely influenced by the 1920s growing up. The 1920s and 1930s saw continued development and evolution of the key innovations of the primary years of the twentieth century. To have these years as the formative period for an artist was to be surrounded by inspiring practitioners of the visual arts. It was also a time of recovery and introspection after the horrors of the First World War, which saw important shifts in the political world. Marxism was a prevalent political ideology which was also particularly influential amongst artists and their communities. The Bauhaus was founded in 1919, and became an important place surrounding ideas in favour of the unification of art, craft and design disciplines – an idea that became known as the Gesamtkunstwerk. Surrealism came to be the key expressive mode of the 1920s, and was aided by the liberalism of Germany’s Weimar Republic, which was an environment that allowed for remarkable creative developments.
