Eric Fischl

Eric Fischl, a painter, sculptor, and printmaker featured in Urban Theater: New York Art in the 1980s, gained acclaim in the 1980s with large-scale paintings depicting middle-class American life with themes of adolescent sexuality and voyeurism. Considered one of the most important figurative artists of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, Fischl’s work has been the subject of numerous solo and major group exhibitions and is represented in many museums, as well as prestigious private and corporate collections. As one of the principal artists of a multifarious decade that continues to inform attitudes of art and is in many ways evident in our current cultural moment, Eric Fischl shares his thoughts in his Tuesday Evenings presentation, “The 80's Seems So Long Ago. Where Was I Then?”
