Oz, The Moment of Liberation & Enjoyment of Being Liberated, Steven Paul Riddle

These two 4' x 4' Acrylic/Oil paintings on canvas by Steven Paul Riddle are based on an essay by Henry Littlefield on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was a political satire, founded on a long tradition of Political interpretations of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He wrote an essay to this effect for his high-school students in Mount Vernon, NY, and published it in the American Quarterly in 1964.

These paintings now reside in the home of a New York collector. You can view more of Steven Paul Riddle's work at Marion Royael Gallery or Amazon Fine Art.
