"This volume is the latest and most comprehensive examination of this important twentieth-century painter. Two hundred thirty-three works, selected in conjunction with the artist, present the full scope of Fischl's career over the past decades: the 1970s, with Fischl's seminal formative work; the 1980s, when he burst onto the art world; and the 1990s, with the artist's mature works, often of a personal and contemplative nature. In his most recent paintings Fischl has turned to portraits of his intimate circle of friends, including Mike Nicholas, Steve Martin, and his own wife, the painter April Gornik. These engrossing images have been accomplished with a mastery that has been compared to that of Caravaggio." "The introduction, by philosopher and critic Arthur Danto, places Fischl in the context of his contemporaries. Commentary drawn from interviews with Fischl, conducted by noted writer Robert Enright, accompanies the paintings. Finally, a witty and personal afterword by Steve Martin, best known as a gifted comic actor and author, but also an astute collector of modern art, discusses Barbeque, a famed Fischl painting from his private collection."--Jacket

Picasso and Braque go to the movies( Visual )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film advances an interesting thesis: if the static visual arts affected early cinema's vocabulary, did moving pictures inspire Cubism's two towering giants, Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque? Cinema and Cubism were born during the birth of modernity itself, and filmmaker Arne Glimcher argues that films, from the earliest days of Thomas Edison and the Lumière Brothers, were a crucial formative influence on Modern painting, particularly on Picasso and Braque. The movies' revolutionary portrayal of time, space, and motion was the engine behind the modernist revolution in fine art. Through interviews with art historians, practicing plastic and visual artists, poets, and filmmakers, it traces the effects of technological revolution--specifically the invention of aviation and the creation of cinema--and their interdependent influence on the art dubbed Modern

"This volume is an examination of the contemporary figurative painter Eric Fischl. More than 250 works, selected in conjunction with the artist, present the scope of Fischl's career: the formative work of the 1970s, including the controversial Sleepwalker and Bad Boy; and the mature work, often of a personal and contemplative nature, of the 1990s and 2000s."--Jacket
Bad boy : my life on and off the canvas by Eric Fischl( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Bad Boy, renowned American artist Eric Fischl has written a penetrating, often searing exploration of his coming of age as an artist, and his search for a fresh narrative style in the highly charged and competitive New York art world in the 1970s and 1980s. With such notorious and controversial paintings as Bad Boy and Sleepwalker, Fischl joined the front ranks of America artists, in a high-octane downtown art scene that included Andy Warhol, David Salle, Julian Schnabel, and others. It was a world of fashion, fame, cocaine and alcohol that for a time threatened to undermine all that Fischl had achieved. In an extraordinarily candid and revealing memoir, Fischl discusses the impact of his dysfunctional family on his art'his mother, an imaginative and tragic woman, was an alcoholic who ultimately took her own life. Following his years as a student at Cal Arts and teaching in Nova Scotia, he describes his early years in New York with the artist April Gornik, just as Wall Street money begins to encroach on the old gallery system and change the economics of the art world. Fischl rebelled against the conceptual and minimalist art that was in fashion at the time to paint compelling portraits of everyday people that captured the unspoken tensions in their lives. Still in his thirties, Eric became the subject of a major Vanity Fair interview, his canvases sold for as much as a million dollars, and The Whitney Museum mounted a major retrospective of his paintings. Bad Boy follows Fischl's maturation both as an artist and sculptor, and his inevitable fall from grace as a new generation of artists takes center stage, and he is forced to grapple with his legacy and place among museums and collectors. Beautifully written, and as courageously revealing as his most provocative paintings, Bad Boy takes the reader on a roller coaster ride through the passion and politics of the art world as it has rarely been seen before
