New in ARTstor from UArts Visual Resources: Hyman Bloom


"Nightfall" (detail) 1981

Hyman Bloom (1913-2009), though born in Latvia, was considered an American artist, the majority of his life having been spent in the United States. Bloom’s imaginative work has drawn inspiration from numerous areas.

His style and color choices were heavily influenced by Abstract Expressionism, while his subject matters were often drawn from his Jewish heritage, philosophy, and mysticism. His art career boomed during the 1940s and 50s, yet his work has stood the test of time and remains relevant and appealing to the modern eye.
