Further Biographical Context for Lotte Calm-Wierink
Born in 1897, Lotte Calm-Wierink's creative work was predominantly inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the energetic development of visual and pictorial art. These years were an time of experimentation, with artists delving into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations inspired artist communities and collectives across the globe, with many groups exploring a variety of methods of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists began to explore psychological applications of art in response to the horrors they had witnessed. Dadaism, an absurdist movement inspired 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 established by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
