Abstract:

"Social realism at its most vivid and vibrant. Images from an artist who witnessed a century of human struggle. Amazing glimpses of an age of change Stunning retrospective collection of a surrealist master. Not a well-known figure, Irving Norman created monumental works that depicted the world he saw and experienced throughout the decades from World War I into the 70's. There is a dark vision shaped by the wars and enormous change of his times as he saw it - war, revolution, industrialization, and the pace and crush of modern life. This collection attempts to bring Norman to a new position and appreciation among modern American masters."--GoogleBooks.
