Further Biographical Context for Theo Akkermann
Theo Akkermann was born in 1907 and was primarily influenced creatively by the 1920s. Significant artistic innovations 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 a number of influential and pioneering artists began to flourish, yet at the same time there was an atmosphere of consideration and sombreness following the horrors of the First World War. Major shifts in politics were happening worldwide, and Marxism took a strong grip as an ideology within artist groups and communities. The leading focus for art at the time was on Freudian theory and the human subconscious, and these ideas were best represented by artists including Salvador Dali, Giorgio de Chirico, Andre Breton, Rene Magritte and Paul Delvaux, whilst in Paris, artists such as Brancusi, Modigliani and Soutine established methods of art which were expressive and dynamic.
