The present painting is an excellent example of Joseph Rozman's pictographic style. The composition is dominated by abstracted vignettes: A fashionable woman beneath the sun, a car, a suburban house, flower gardens, a bicycle, the American flag – all arranged like Egyptian hieroglyphs to evoke linguistic meaning. At the same time, however, these subjects acknowledge the Pop concerns of the 1960s by looking to contemporary life and symbols. 18.75 x 28.75 inches, artwork 29.5 x 39.25 inches, frame Signed and dated in pencil, lower right Framed to conservation standards using archival materials including 100 percent rag matting; housed in a modern profile gold gilded frame.
