Further Biographical Context for Antonio Cortimiglia
Antonio Cortimiglia was born in 1922 and was predominantly inspired creatively by the 1930s. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the conflict between the world’s foremost political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. In the United States, the Great Depression had a great influence on artistic production, with many artists taking inspiration from the agrarian and the modest 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 organized exhibitions on social and political themes such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, anti-lynching, anti-fascism, and workers' strikes.
