Further Biographical Context for Luis Medir
Luis Medir was born in 1893 and was largely inspired creatively by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the dynamic 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 developments took hold with artist communities and collectives around the world, with many groups exploring different ways of communicating their ideas. After the First World War, artists began to explore psychological uses 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 began the careers of famous 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.
