Further Biographical Context for Pasquale Frenguelli

Born in 1895, Pasquale Frenguelli's creative work was predominantly inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the 20th century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These years were an era of experimentation, with artists exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These developments took hold with artist communities and collectives across the globe, with many groups exploring a variety of ways of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists endeavoured to explore psychological uses of art in response to the terrors they had experienced. Dadaism, an absurdist movement influenced directly by the events of the war, spread to many countries across Europe and established the careers of renowned 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 established by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
