Further Biographical Context for Margareta Cossaceanu Lavrillier
Born in 1893, Margareta Cossaceanu Lavrillier was largely influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were characterised by dynamic developments in pictorial art. It was the era of post-Impressionism and of experimentation, including the first ventures into Expressionism and Abstraction. Many different groups of artists or loosely affiliated communities of the avant-garde in different major cities around the world developed a variety of modes of these key innovations. The horrors of the First World War hatched important developments in the psychological intentions of art, including the absurdist stylings of Dadaism which appeared in Paris, Berlin, Zurich and Hannover, and which brought recognition for artists like Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Hannah Höch and Kurt Schwitters. Many of these ideas would go on to flourish further in Surrealism - the first art movement to fully incorporate psychology, and in particular ideas about the unconscious which had been developed by Sigmund Freud and his disciple Carl Jung.
