Rowe was a politically active artist – in the early 1930s he made designs for Communist Party publications and spent eighteen months traveling and working in the Soviet Union. In 1934 he helped establish the Artists’ International Association whose work included helping refugees from Hitler’s Germany and providing medical aid to the British International Brigade during the Spanish Civil War.
