Lou Hirshman

“The Flood” – 1964

Click on image for an enlargement.

A year after creating “The Hunt #1,” Hirshman returned to surrealism with “The Flood,” complete with a roof-bound bird carrying a rabbit’s foot for luck from its beak. The collage may be a reference to the Book of Genesis, in which Noah, on his flood-floating ark (although there are no pairs of animals here), sent out birds for a reconnaissance flight to see if the deluged land was drying up.

There is another unframed rendering of “The Flood,” probably a first version, exactly the same, except for less “stitched” rain and more objects in the swept-away house – including a Camel pack, a Pepsi Cola bottle cap, etc. – possibly removed as too much “compositional” clutter. Both versions have a cartoon character (Noah?) in a desperate call for rescue shouting “E-L-P,” – Help! – (perhaps of Cockney origin due to the phonetic dropping of the “H,” sound) .

    Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your site.
    You have some really great articles and I think I would be a good asset.

    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some material for your
    blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested.
    Many thanks!

    Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks
    fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful blog!
