The art of the beginning of the 20th century belongs to the classical modern. Van Gogh and Gauguin paved the way for new impulses in art. Modern painting has detached itself from traditional painting and offered artists great freedom of expression. The art form of surrealism developed in France and the touch of the avant-garde drew through England's galleries, Dadaism, Cubism and Fauvism were art movements that influenced painting as well as literature. The artists had the great opportunity to experiment in many directions. Painting had freed itself from all set limits. The artists who won the favor of a collector and received financial support from patrons were successful. While the life of the bohemian has always been an antipole to the social norm, a life of intoxication developed in the artist scene.

Christopher Wood was born into one of the most dazzling art eras that Europe had ever experienced. Wood has great talent, but the artist lacks his own style at a young age. The painter had not yet found himself when he found himself in the lively vortex of painters and art collectors. He tries surrealism, tries primitivism and finally joins a London art group that recalls the classic conversations of art. Important stages in its development are Paris, London and St. Ives. Wood succeeds again and again with which he causes a sensation in the art scene. The farewell of the fisherman shows a moment on the beach in Cornwall, which Wood reproduces in the "primitive" style that he so appreciates as an artist.

Christopher Wood is unable to draw the quintessences from his success. The life of the painter is determined by incredibly successful exhibitions and sad failures. The sinus curve in Wood's artistic career is accompanied by private events. Neither love for women nor men leads to a stable partnership. Opium was considered an adequate means in art circles to attract creativity. In combination with alcohol, quite a few painters lived through the days in a frenzy. The artist Christopher Wood has suffered from delusions of persecution and confusion in the past few years. The English painter found motifs in Brittany for which the art scene worshiped him. Renoir had already captured the flair of the coastal town of Treboul. Wood gave the landscape a naive expression. At the end of 1930 the painter created his last works. Zebra and parachute show a clear proximity to surrealism. The painter ended his life in the same. There are conjectures about the reasons. Drugs or fear of criticism could have triggered the desire to stop living. © Meisterdrucke
