Further Biographical Context for Willy Bindels
Born in 1908, Willy Bindels was predominantly inspired by the 1920s growing up. Significant artistic developments that had been established in the earlier part of the 20th century continued to be developed during the 1920s and 1930s. During this period the careers of a number of influential and pioneering artists began to blossom, yet at the same time there was an atmosphere of reflection and solemnity following the horrors of the First World War. Major shifts in politics were taking place worldwide, and Marxism took a strong grip as an ideology amongst artist groups and communities. The primary focus for art during this 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 developed methods of art which were expressive and dynamic.
