Further Biographical Context for Fashi Mingshan

Born in 1914, Fashi Mingshan's creative work was largely inspired by the 1930s. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the conflict 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 influence on artistic output, 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 collectives of artists began to address politics, and tried to use their art to impact society. Artists focused exhibitions on social and political themes such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, anti-lynching, anti-fascism, and workers' strikes.
