Further Biographical Context for Odette Manton-Nallard
Born in 1910, Odette Manton-Nallard was predominantly influenced by the 1920s. Important artistic innovations that had been established in the earlier part of the 20th century continued to be developed during the 1920s and 1930s. At this time the careers of many inspiring and pioneering artists began to blossom, 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 hold as an ideology amongst artist groups and communities. Due to its cultural significance, Surrealism spread as an ideology on an international scale, and became the most prominent theme of the pictorial arts in the 1920s. The Bauhaus movement developed during this time and concentrated on a unification of all modes of art, working towards the idea of the ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’. The liberal politics of the Weimar Republic in Germany empowered this movement to blossom and flourish and develop further.
