Further Biographical Context for Fred Harris
Fred Harris was born in 1910 and grew up during the 1930s and was inspired by the artistic atmosphere of the time. Internationally 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. n Europe, Surrealism continued to be the dominant artistic trend; a kind of expression and school of thought that by this time had spread across the globe. In Mexico, artists like Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera incorporated a number of these principals into their radical political ideologies to develop a innovative kind of magic realism.
