Further Biographical Context for Marcel Martin
Marcel Martin was born in 1906 and was primarily inspired creatively by the 1920s. Significant artistic developments that had been established in the earlier part of the 20th century continued to be matured during the 1920s and 1930s. At this time the careers of a number of inspiring and pioneering artists began to flourish, yet at the same time there was an atmosphere of reflection and solemnity following the horrors of the First World War. Major shifts in politics were happening worldwide, and Marxism took a strong grip as an ideology amongst artist groups and communities. The leading focus for art at the time was on Freudian theory and the human subconscious, and these ideas were best portrayed by artists including Salvador Dali, Giorgio de Chirico, Andre Breton, Rene Magritte and Paul Delvaux, whilst in Paris, artists such as Brancusi, Modigliani and Soutine developed methods of art which were expressive and dynamic.
