Further Biographical Context for Michail Vladimirovich Matorin
Michail Vladimirovich Matorin was born in 1901 and was primarily influenced by the 1920s growing up. Key artistic developments that had been established in the earlier part of the 20th century continued to be worked on during the 1920s and 1930s. At this time the careers of many inspiring and pioneering artists began to flourish, yet at the same time there was an atmosphere of reflection and sombreness following the horrors of the First World War. Significant shifts in politics were taking place worldwide, and Marxism took a strong hold as an ideology within 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 represented 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.
