Further Biographical Context for John Howard Gould
John Howard Gould was born in 1929 and grew up during the 1930s and was inspired by the artistic culture of the time. On a global scale this period can be best characterised by the duelling of the world’s predominant political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. The era took a sinister turn with the beginning of National Socialism in Germany, and Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. The decade would culminate in the inset on the Second World War; a political and social furore that preoccupied not only artists, but great swathes of the global population.
