Further Biographical Context for Ma Zhaolin
Ma Zhaolin was born in 1915 and was predominantly inspired creatively by the 1930s. Internationally 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 dawn 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 furore that preoccupied not only artists, but great swathes of the world’s population.
