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) .

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see
    if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with
