Further Biographical Context for Peter Barker-Mill

Born in 1908, Peter Barker-Mill grew up during the 1920s and was influenced by the artistic atmosphere of the time. 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. During this period the careers of many inspiring and pioneering artists began to blossom, yet at the same time there was an atmosphere of consideration and solemnity following the horrors of the First World War. Significant shifts in politics were taking place worldwide, and Marxism took a strong grip as an ideology within artist groups and communities. Due to its cultural significance, Surrealism spread as an philosophy on an international scale, and became the leading 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 grow and develop further.
