Biography
Press



Born in 1924 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, Philip Pearlstein lives and works in New York. He is considered to be one of the masters of new figuration and modernist realism. He has been examining the question of how the model is represented since the 1960s, his complex works straddling the line between naturalism, abstraction and hyperrealism. His still lives in oil feature nudes with mask-like expressions, often women, in carefully arranged interiors.
