Further Biographical Context for Mario Maestrelli
Mario Maestrelli was born in 1911 and was largely inspired by the 1930s. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the duelling of 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 tremendous impact on artistic production, with a number of artists focusing on the agrarian and the humble man in the streets. It was the first time in US history that widespread collectives of artists began to address politics, and endeavoured 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.
