Exactly square - no

32" Square 4:3, most likely exist but they are not exactly square (4:3 means that the width is greater that the height)

You could get a large monitor and mask a portion of the screen, and play with the width/resolution settings

You won't see a "square" monitor.

Wide is defined as follows. HD is the most common.

Wide (W)

The base resolution increased by increasing the width and keeping the height constant, for square
or near-square pixels on a widescreen display, usually with an aspect ratio of either 16:9 or 16:10.


HD High Definition (720p) This display aspect ratio is among the most common in recent notebook computers and desktop monitors. 1366x768 (1049k) 16:9

The old 32-inch CRT televisions were 4:3 aspect ratio (but they weighed about 300 lbs).  Most modern 32-inch televisions can act as monitors and have 4:3 display options (you will see black bars on the side).
