Ernest Tino Trova (American, 1927 - 2009): Falling Man from Banner, 1969. Silkscreen on paper, unsigned, unframed.

Ernest Trova is known for Sculpture, assemblage, abstraction. Known for his Falling Man series in abstract figural sculpture, he created hard-edge images that brought him widespread attention because they seem to strike a chord of empathy with viewers who recognized themselves as human beings challenged by a technological society. Also, they are the only creatures aware of their mortality. He is considered highly innovative because of his successful combining of technological methods to create his art.
