Irving Norman
Monumental

1969

About

A painting by Irving Norman. "Monumental" is an oil on canvas painting executed in a dark yet pastel palette by Social Surrealist artist Irving Norman. "Monumental" exemplifies Norman's oeuvre, embracing the avant-garde, magic-realism and American Expressionism which grew out of post WW2 with its inconvenient political commentary. Grand in scale, "Monumental" is technically precise, simple yet complex and full of the social concerns that dominate Norman's work, the horrors of war, exploitation of people, dehumanization of the urban environment, the oppression and alienation of technology, the loneliness of the human condition. Provenance: Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento Exhibition: 1973 San Francisco Art Commission Gallery Literature: Dark Metropolis: Irving Norman's Social Surrealism, ed. Scott A. Shields and Ray Day (Sacramento and Berkeley: The Crocker Art Museum and Heyday Books, 2006), pg. 213
