Sharon Butler reviews A New Subjectivity: Figurative Painting after 2000, curated by Jason Stopa, at Pratt Manhattan Gallery, New York (through April 12). The show features works by Katherine Bradford, Katherine Bernhardt, Gina Beavers, Jackie Gendel, Liz Markus, and Rose Wylie.

Butler writes that curator Jason Stopa "makes a strong case that contemporary painters, particularly those working figuratively, are cultivating a new form of Expressionism."
