Further Biographical Context for John Eddy Mathews
Born in 1912, John Eddy Mathews' creative work was predominantly influenced by the 1930s. On a global scale 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. The era assumed a sinister turn with the beginning of National Socialism in Germany, and Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. The decade would conclude in the inset on the Second World War; a political and social tumult that preoccupied not only artists, but great swathes of the global population.
