Ernest Trova: A major twentieth century silkscreen artist and sculptor, Ernest Trova has been classified as both a leading Surrealist and as a Pop Artist. Born in St. Louis, Ernest Trova attended no art school and rigorously rejected any form of academic training. In 1963, Ernest Trova created his first original silkscreens for the Pace Gallery, New York. Pace Gallery also launched his first one man show of prints and sculpture that year. Pace Editions published his silkscreen art until 1985.
During the late 1960's and into the 1970's, Ernest Trova gained a huge international reputation for his representations of the human condition in his series both in silkscreens and sculptures of what he termed, "Falling Man". These complex works depict rising and falling man -- often half humanoid - in emotionally charged spheres and circles. In many ways his numerous representations of this theme became an icon or symbol for the dilemma of man in the modern age.
In 1969, Pace Editions published a large set of ten silkscreens by Ernest Trova under the title of Falling Man Manscapes Portfolio. Each was printed in sole edition of 175 signed and numbered impressions. Falling Man is one of these important works of silkscreen art.
Today the art of Ernest Trova is included in many public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and the National Museum of American Art, Washington, DC.
Ernest Trova was born in Clayton and lived in the St. Louis, area for most of his life. Trova lived in Richmond Hights when he died at the age of eighty two.
