Further Biographical Context for Umberto Cuzzi
Born in 1891, Umberto Cuzzi's creative work was primarily inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The Fauves are widely considered to be the first major Post-Impressionist group, working in the at the start of the twentieth century. Including artists such as Henry Matisse within their ranks, the Fauves believed that vivid, other worldly colours and energetic brushstrokes were an integral component of their work. At the same time, a young Pablo Picasso, still in his youth, created his famed Blue and Rose periods in Paris, and by the end of the 1920s he had developed the first ideas of portraying fractured views of reality alongside his contemporary Georges Braque. This movement became known as Analytical Cubism. The psychological uses of art began to be further explored and developed following the terrors of the WWI. Dadaism, a nonsensical and absurdist movement inspired directly by the war, appeared in Paris, Berlin, Zurich and Hannover, and launched the careers of artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Hannah Höch and Kurt Schwitters. The vital philosophies behind Dadaism would go on to find ground in Surrealism, which was the first art movement to fully incorporate psychology and ideas about the subconscious, and took great inspiration from the work of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung.
