Further Biographical Context for Manuel Raúl Deliotti
Manuel Raúl Deliotti was born in 1920 and was primarily inspired by the 1930s growing up. 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. In the United States, the Great Depression had a great influence on artistic production, with a number of artists taking inspiration from the agrarian and the modest man in the streets. It was the first time in US history that widespread collectives of artists began to address politics, and attempted to use their art to influence society. Artists focused exhibitions on social and political themes such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, anti-lynching, anti-fascism, and workers' strikes.
