Further Biographical Context for Robert Edward Duncan
Born in 1919, Robert Edward Duncan's creative work was largely inspired by the 1930s. On a global scale 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. The era assumed a sinister turn with the dawn of National Socialism in Germany, and Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. The decade would conclude in the inset on the Second World War; a political and social uproar that preoccupied not only artists, but large swathes of the world’s population.
