Further Biographical Context for Ma Longqing
Born in 1911, Ma Longqing was primarily inspired by the 1930s. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the conflict between the world’s leading political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. The era took a sinister turn with the advent 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 uproar that preoccupied not only artists, but large swathes of the world’s population.
