Further Biographical Context for Jerome Liebling
Born in 1924, Jerome Liebling was primarily inspired by the 1930s growing up. The period of the 1930s is characterised by the clashing of many political ideologies, including Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. Artistic output in the United States was heavily impacted at the time by the Great Depression, and a number of artists took to focusing on ideas of humbleness and the ordinary man. For the first time in US history, artists began to delve into political subjects and attempted to use their art to impact society. Themes such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, anti-lynching, anti-fascism, and workers' strikes were prevalent in many artists’ work.
