Further Biographical Context for Hans Molenaar
Born in 1914, Hans Molenaar was primarily inspired by the 1930s. Globally this period can be best characterised by the clash between the world’s leading 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 movements of artists began to address politics, and tried to use their art to influence society. Artists organized exhibitions on social and political themes such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, anti-lynching, anti-fascism, and workers' strikes.
