Further Biographical Context for Raymond Martin
Raymond Martin was born in 1910 and 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. In the United States, the Great Depression had a tremendous influence on artistic output, 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 movements of artists began to address politics, and endeavoured to use their art to impact society. Artists organized exhibitions on social and political themes such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, anti-lynching, anti-fascism, and workers' strikes.
