Art of darkness
Developments in the period 1930-1945 were particularly significant in terms of highlighting the use of art by political leaders, according to historian Eric Hobsbawm in the foreward to the catalogue for 'Art and Power: Europe under the Dictators 1930-1945,' an exhibition being staged at the Hayward Gallery, London, UK. Regimes during this period sought to completely control the lives of ordinary people, and as part of this policy placed great demands on art. Art was required to demonstrate the glory of power, to organise power as a public drama and to take on an educational or propagandist role.
