Further Biographical Context for Ottilia Mayer
Born in 1924, Ottilia Mayer's creative work was primarily inspired by the 1930s. On a global scale this period can be best characterised by the conflict between the world’s dominant political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. n Europe, Surrealism continued to be the dominant artistic trend; a kind of expression and school of thought that by this time had spread worldwide. In Mexico, artists like Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera integrated a number of these ideas into their radical political ideologies to develop a new kind of magic realism.
