About

A large oil on canvas painting by Irving Norman. "The Palace" is an oil on canvas, large scale painting, executed in a dark palette and depicting the dark side of modern civilization and the human condition, angels and demons, heaven and hell and life on earth by American artist Irving Norman. "The Palace" was the type of painting that was conceived as public works. Norman believed that by bearing witness to cruelty and oppression, he might move viewers to consider their own role in systems of power. Norman was deeply affected and influenced by the murals of Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros in Mexico.
