Helene RIEDEL ✿

Hélène Riedel (1901-1991)was a Belgian visual painter. She was born in Troppau (now Opava, Czech Republic) and death in City of Brussels. Riedel developed her own style and very personal themes, apart from the great artistic trends. Her paintings are neither abstract, nor slavishly realistic.
In 1901 and grew up during the 1920s and was inspired by the artistic atmosphere of the time. The 1920s and 1930s saw continued development and evolution of the key innovations of the early years of the twentieth century. To have this time as the formative period for an artist was to be surrounded by incredible practitioners of the visual arts.
It was also a time of recovery and introspection after the horrors of the First World War, which saw significant shifts in the political world. Marxism was a predominant political ideology which was also extremely influential among artists and their communities. noteworthy artistic developments included a kind of expressive characteristic which was epitomised by Brancusi, Modigliani and Soutine in Paris.
Surrealism developed throughout the 1920s and 1930s, with a focus on the human unconscious - a vital idea of Freudian theory. Important Surrealist artists include Salvador Dali, Giorgio de Chirico, Andre Breton, Rene Magritte and Paul Delvaux.
Due to its cultural importance, much of this ideology spread on a global scale. The Bauhaus was founded in 1919, and became an essential place surrounding notions in favour of the unification of art, craft and design disciplines – an idea that became known as the Gesamtkunstwerk. Surrealism came to be the predominant expressive mode of the 1920s, and was aided by the liberalism of Germany’s Weimar Republic, which was an environment that allowed for tremendous creative flowering
