Further Biographical Context for Constancio Bernardo
Constancio Bernardo was born in 1913 and was largely 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 impact 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 collectives of artists began to address politics, and attempted to use their art to influence society. Artists held exhibitions on social and political themes such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, anti-lynching, anti-fascism, and workers' strikes.
