Dadaism was an artistic period that took place in the 20th century. Turning away from traditional practices and after experiencing the turmoils of War, Dadaists such as Kurt Schwitters and Joan Miro expressed their inner thoughts and feelings in their abstract works. 

Outside influences such as warfare diminished many of the population to become demoralized and unhappy with the harsh reality of their world. Abstract paintings such as this became popular as the public interpreted their own meanings.
Schwitter's was renowned for his collages and for the creation of MERZ-art which utilized common objects for texture, color, and interest.
