Further Biographical Context for Bronislaw Chyla
Bronislaw Chyla was born in 1911, grew up during the 1930s and was inspired by the artistic culture of the time. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the clash between the world’s leading 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 taking inspiration from the agrarian and the modest man in the streets. It was the first time in US history that widespread collectives of artists began to address politics, and tried to use their art to influence society. Artists organized exhibitions on social and political themes such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, anti-lynching, anti-fascism, and workers' strikes.
