Philip Pearlstein

Model With Choochoo Weathervane And African Chair

The artist


Born in 1924 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, Philip Pearlstein died in 2022. 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.
