Further Biographical Context for Paulette Martin
Paulette Martin was born in 1905 and was largely inspired by the 1920s growing up. The 1920s and 1930s saw continued development and evolution of the key innovations of the first years of the twentieth century. To have these years as the formative period for an artist was to be surrounded by incredible practitioners of the visual arts. It was also a time of recovery and introspection after the horrors of the First World War, which saw significant shifts in politics. Marxism was a predominant political ideology which was also enormously influential amongst artists and their communities. The Bauhaus was founded in 1919, and became an essential place surrounding notions in favour of the unification of art, craft and design disciplines – an idea that became known as the Gesamtkunstwerk. Surrealism came to be the predominant expressive mode of the 1920s, and was aided by the liberalism of Germany’s Weimar Republic, which was an environment that allowed for remarkable creative blossoming.
