The entire show may be viewed under Exhibitions or Current.

During World War II Hugh Mesibov was a First Class Ship Fitter at the historic William Cramp & Son Shipbuilding Company in Philadelphia. That day-to-day experience, combined with horrific wartime news, resulted in a body surrealist paintings and drawings. A highlight of the show is his monumental painting, The Siege (Leningrad), 1943.

A work by Mesibov from this period was included in the landmark exhibition, Surrealism USA, at the National Academy of Design Museum, NY, 2005.
