Contemporary Figurative Painting

Contemporary Figurative Painting

Alfred Stieglitz wrote, "Portrait painting is doomed. Painting portraiture will become obsolete when the time arrives that photographers will have learned something about portraiture in its deeper sense and when the public is weaned from the stupid superstition that a thing painted is necessarily better than a thing done through the new medium, photography." Over the past century, the Constructivists, Futurists, Dadaists and Conceptualists all announced their intention to kill painting, and indeed the death of painting continues to be championed and dissected by such contemporary critics as Douglas Crimp and Yve-Alain Bois. And yet… today, figure painting is experiencing an unprecedented revival, with artists like John Currin, Peter Doig, Marlene Dumas, Lucian Freud, Wangechi Mutu, Elizabeth Peyton, Neo Rauch, Gerhard Richter, Dana Schutz and Luc Tuymans among the leaders of the charge. Our Artbook Curated Library on Contemporary Figurative Painting selects the key titles on contemporary figurative painters.
