Pegasus
1945
Leo Katz
This work represents the condition of the creative spirit after World War II.  Pegasus, the symbol of creative inspiration, tries to escape the dominion of barbed wires and nets among concrete tank traps, while explosions continue in the distance. The dark mask creeping around the horse suggests a pelvic form, which indicates that the awakening is more like a birth. The artist questions whether the rebirth of Pegasus will be a continual success: “It is not enough to have rockets and bombers flying high in the air while man’s creative soul with its dreams is permanently grounded.”
