UMMA Object Specific Fields






Query builder

You are free to choose any work from this course-specific collection of surrealist art from UMMA as the subject for your third essay (Visual Analysis).  You can also search through the UMMA Exchange to find a different work to analyze for your paper -- but in this case, please check in with me first about your intentions.

We will spend some time in class Wednesday, Sep. 30 reviewing and discussing some of the works from this collection, so please come to class with specific observations, questions, and/or reflections in mind to contribute to our conversations.

Subject matter
Part of Lopez's later series of work produced after the Second World War, this print shows the distinctly darker view of the world than his previous work. At the same time, the artist was inspired by German Expressionism as the expressive lines and dramatic figures attest in this print. The macabre figures come together in a kind of circus side show.
