Further Biographical Context for Paulino Montez
Born in 1897, Paulino Montez' creative work was largely inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the vibrant development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an era of experimentation, with artists delving into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These developments took hold with artist communities and collectives on an international scale, with many groups developing different methods of expressing their ideas. After the First World War, artists began to explore psychological uses of art in response to the horrors they had witnessed. Dadaism, an absurdist movement influenced directly by the events of the war, spread to a number of countries across Europe and began the careers of famous 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.
