Bloom Catalogue Raisonne Project





In late 2015, a project was started to document Hyman Bloom’s body of work. As of May 2017, 411 works have been cataloged in a relational database. The records capture details of each work as well as known publication, exhibition and provenance data. 119 distinct instances of exhibitions & publications have been identified where Bloom works were shown and/or published. Of these, 23 were solo exhibitions, 65 were group exhibitions and 31 are publications (books/periodicals).



There are a number of Bloom works from the 1940s and 1950s that are now missing.  Some of these paintings were exhibited early on, but have not been seen in 60+ years.

Missing pictures include the following paintings:

"Conquest", 1952, Oil on Canvas

"Cadaver on a Table", 1953, Oil on Canvas

"The Stone, version 2", 1947, Oil on Canvas

Additional missing pictures, where no image is available, include:   Hospital Scene (1947) and Military Campaign (1952).


If you own a work by Hyman Bloom, or have information regarding a missing picture, please send email to so that details of your work(s) can be included in the database. It is hoped that publication of the data can take place at some point in the not-too-distant future, most likely in an online format.
