Widely admired in his day but overlooked in most histories of 20th-century American art, Hyman Bloom combined the physical and the spiritual on canvas. Committed to figurative painting at the very moment abstraction was on the rise, Bloom made gripping, bold depictions of the human form in life and in death. Life is a cycle, and so are reputations—rediscover, with exhibition curator Erica Hirshler, a painter who ignored the mechanics of building fame to devote himself to revealing truths through his art.

Erica Hirshler, Croll Senior Curator of American Paintings, Art of the Americas
