Further Biographical Context for Garry Havrillay

Garry Havrillay was born in 1921 and was primarily influenced creatively by the 1930s. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the clash 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 tremendous impact 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 held exhibitions on social and political themes such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, anti-lynching, anti-fascism, and workers' strikes.
