1960s Surreal Painting of Human Figure Rising Out of the Sea
Regular priceSale price
Here we have a stunning and large painting of a surreal "Dawn of Man" type scene of a human figure rising out of the sea surrounded by an atomic atmosphere. I spotted this beauty across a field and immediately b-lined my way to it. I've never seen a piece so unusual yet arresting because of the sheer force of the vision and execution. That's a long way of saying this artwork may just cause earthquakes, both mental and physical. The colors are pleasing on the eyes even if they represent something sinister going on....or beautiful...with the best art you truly are left to your own interpretation. Lengthy discussions while enjoying drinks. Just imagine it.
The large surreal painting came out of an old estate in Massachusetts. I was told the painting was likely produced in the 50s or 60s. The vintage painting is signed "R.M." in the bottom right corner. The haven't nailed down the artist so we have a mystery artist on our hands.
The large atomic painting measures 34" wide, 24" tall and about 1" deep. There is light surface patina from age throughout the artwork, especially along the very edges. There is a discoloration spot below one of the clouds. I'm unsure if it's intended or not. I'll let you decide. Please see all pics as they are part of the discussion.
For this painting I will ship UPS to street addresses in the continental USA only (no PO Boxes). Free shipping on this amazing atomic painting.
The dawn of humanity or the end of it. So mysterious, sci fi, and retina burning.
