Further Biographical Context for Sakkiasee Anaija
Sakkiasee Anaija was born in 1913 and was primarily influenced creatively by the 1930s. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the conflict between the world’s leading 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 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.
