Further Biographical Context for Eva Histia
Born in 1914, Eva Histia's creative work was primarily inspired by the 1930s. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the conflict 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 great influence 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 tried 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.
