Hyman Bloom: The Beauty of All Things2010

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 3.3
Painter Hyman Bloom is one of the forefathers of abstract art in America. His career flourished in the 1940's and 50's garnering the highest praise in both art and popular press. His intense beliefs about composition and masterful command of color were breathtaking and are admired by artists to this day. But Hyman's decision to continue exploring figurative work when the art world was moving towards total abstraction and his habitual disdain for the public eye brought him from being one of the infamous "Bad Boys from Boston" to a man little known in the mainstream art scene. The film highlights a body of work that is a vibrant manifestation of Bloom's imagination and his dedication to envision what others didn't dare.
