Further Biographical Context for Dorothy Hagen
Born in 1918, Dorothy Hagen was primarily inspired by the 1930s. Globally this period can be best characterised by the duelling of the world’s dominant 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 culminate in the inset on the Second World War; a political and social uproar that preoccupied not only artists, but great swathes of the global population.
