Further Biographical Context for Elisabeth Dutoit

Elisabeth Dutoit was born in 1917 and grew up during the 1930s and was influenced by the artistic culture of the time. Globally this period can be best characterised by the clash between the world’s leading 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 furore that preoccupied not only artists, but large swathes of the global population.
