Further Biographical Context for Nikolai Maltzev

Nikolai Maltzev was born in 1924 and was predominantly inspired creatively by the 1930s. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the conflict between the world’s foremost political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. In the United States, the Great Depression had a tremendous 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 collectives of artists began to address politics, and attempted to use their art to influence society. Artists organized exhibitions on social and political themes such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, anti-lynching, anti-fascism, and workers' strikes.
