Further Biographical Context for David Cressey
Born in 1916, David Cressey's creative work was largely influenced by the 1930s. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the clash between the world’s foremost political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. The era assumed a sinister turn with the advent 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 uproar that preoccupied not only artists, but large swathes of the world’s population.
