Further Biographical Context for Theo Elfrink
Theo Elfrink was born in 1923 and was largely influenced by the 1930s. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the conflict between the world’s predominant political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. The era assumed a sinister turn with the beginning of National Socialism in Germany, and Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. The decade would culminate in the inset on the Second World War; a political and social tumult that preoccupied not only artists, but great swathes of the world’s population.
