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:
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 email@example.com 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.
