Figure Drawing Elsewhere
As we all know, the Palette and Chisel is not the only place where models pose for life drawing.
Above is a 2011 painting by Nicole Eisenman that I bumped into at the Art Institute last weekend.
Previously it had hung at the Whitney, where, as shown in the video above, the artist was invited to conduct a life drawing workshop in the gallery itself so that visitors might better comprehend her kind of art.
Which is similar to our kind of art, except that people are expected to be nuttier and more conflicted about the human condition in NYC.
