Further Biographical Context for Edward Beach Iii Hough
Born in 1914, Edward Beach Iii Hough's creative work was primarily influenced by the 1930s. Globally this period can be best characterised by the clash between the world’s predominant 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 a number of artists focusing on the agrarian and the modest man in the streets. It was the first time in US history that widespread movements of artists began to address politics, and endeavoured to use their art to impact society. Artists held exhibitions on social and political themes such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, anti-lynching, anti-fascism, and workers' strikes.
