Further Biographical Context for Andrée Bordeaux Le Pecq
Andrée Bordeaux Le Pecq was born in 1911 and was primarily inspired creatively by the 1930s growing up. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the clash between the world’s dominant political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. In the United States, the Great Depression had a tremendous influence on artistic output, with many artists focusing on the agrarian and the humble man in the streets. It was the first time in US history that widespread collectives of artists began to address politics, and endeavoured to use their art to influence society. Artists focused exhibitions on social and political themes such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, anti-lynching, anti-fascism, and workers' strikes.
