State of the Art in American Figurative Painting

Image coming soon.

Daniel Maidman observes the topic of contemporary figure painting through the work of three painters: Yedidya Hershberg, Eric Fischl, and Heather Morgan.

Maidman begins: “The field [of figurative painting] is enormous and shows almost no conceptual or procedural unity. One’s only hope, in approaching the topic overall, is to build up a mosaic of specifics, and so I’ve chosen three figurative painters to discuss; not because they are representative, but only because I like them, I think they are interesting, and they seem to me to reveal a fair fraction of the tremendous diversity of the field as it stands.”
