Description

In his dynamic gestural lithograph Hurricane, Hultberg expresses the powerful destruction of hurricane force winds and rain which have leveled buildings, flipped semi-trailer trucks, and rendered utility poles useless and at diagonals. The blackness of the sky warns of further peril while the landscape appears lit by a luminous aerial phenomenon often experienced after earthquakes. The 1962 Atlantic hurricane season featured Hurricanes Daisy and Ella. Hurricane Daisy was the costliest of the season and the storm dropped the highest rainfall total on record in Maine.

Impressions of Hurricane are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the Burchfield Penney Art Center, Buffalo, New York; and UCLA Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles.
