Further Biographical Context for Karl Meier-Lemgo
Karl Meier-Lemgo was born in 1892 and was largely inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the 20th 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 around the world, with many groups exploring different ways of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists started to explore psychological applications of art in response to the horrors they had experienced. Dadaism, an absurdist movement inspired directly by the events of the war, spread to a number of 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 established by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
