Further Biographical Context for Germán Horacio
Germán Horacio was born in 1912 and was largely inspired by the 1930s growing up. 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. n Europe, Surrealism continued to be the dominant artistic trend; a kind of expression and school of thought that by this time had spread worldwide. In Mexico, artists like Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera integrated a number of these philosophies into their radical political ideologies to develop a innovative kind of magic realism.
