Further Biographical Context for Charles Demetropoulos
Charles Demetropoulos was born in 1912 and was primarily inspired creatively by the 1930s. Globally this period can be best characterised by the duelling of the world’s predominant political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. The era took a sinister turn with the dawn of National Socialism in Germany, and Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. The decade would conclude in the inset on the Second World War; a political and social tumult that preoccupied not only artists, but great swathes of the world’s population.
