Further Biographical Context for Martha Elizabeth Moore
Born in 1913, Martha Elizabeth Moore was predominantly influenced by the 1930s. On a global scale this period can be best characterised by the clash between the world’s predominant 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 many artists focusing on the agrarian and the modest man in the streets. It was the first time in US history that widespread movements 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.
