Further Biographical Context for Antoni Jan Golebniak
Born in 1917, Antoni Jan Golebniak's creative work was primarily inspired by the 1930s. Globally this period can be best characterised by the conflict between the world’s predominant political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. In the United States, the Great Depression had a great impact on artistic production, with many artists taking inspiration from the agrarian and the humble man in the streets. It was the first time in US history that widespread movements of artists began to address politics, and attempted to use their art to impact society. Artists held exhibitions on social and political themes such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, anti-lynching, anti-fascism, and workers' strikes.
