Further Biographical Context for Léon Claessens

Léon Claessens was born in 1924 and was largely inspired creatively by the 1930s growing up. Throughout the 1930s, many political ideologies such as Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism were engaged in struggles for dominance, and characterised the political atmosphere of the period. n Europe, Surrealism continued to be prominent, and had grown to have influence worldwide. Leading artists took the ideas posed by Surrealism and incorporated them into their radical political ideologies, creating a new kind of magic realism. This was epitomised in the work of artists such as Frida Kahlo and Diego Riviera in Mexico.
