"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

Der US-amerikanische Maler, Grafiker und Bildhauer Eric Fischl (* 1948 in New York) zählt zu den wichtigsten Vertretern der zeitgenössischen Figuration. Sein Werk ist durch einen an den amerikanischen Realismus anknu?pfenden Stil gekennzeichnet. Die Kompositionen, die Szenen schnappschussartig einfangen, lassen den Eindruck eines Filmausschnitts entstehen. Die soeben erfolgte oder unmittelbar bevorstehende Handlung wird somit oftmals nur angedeutet. Eric Fischls Motive sind häufig dem familiären Kontext entnommen. Sie beschreiben das Alltägliche und Gewöhnliche, zeigen Personen in Paarkonstellationen oder in Interaktion, meist spärlich bekleidet bis nackt in sexuell dominierter Atmosphäre. Der Betrachter wird in der Rolle des Voyeurs in diese von Fischl kreierte Bilderwelt eingebunden.0Der Katalog zur Ausstellung in der Albertina konzentriert sich auf Eric Fischls grafische Arbeiten und umfasst einen Querschnitt seines Schaffens. Neben Druckgrafiken, Arbeiten auf Glassine und Chromecoat – darunter Eric Fischls bekannte Bade- und Strandszenen –, sind in Ergänzung zu den posierenden Figuren der Aquarelle auch einige Bronzeskulpturen des Ku?nstlers zu sehen.0Exhibition: Albertina, Vienna, Austria (13.02.-18.05.2014)
