Dive Deep: Eric Fischl and the Process of Painting showcases 145 works of art, including 50 working photographs and 14 paintings from 1979 to the present. The exhibition is accompanied by a constellation of related studies in various media, most of which have never before been made available for public viewing and provide a revealing look into the painter’s provocative visual intelligence. Together these works illustrate Fischl’s process as a synthesis of astute observation and interpretation.
Curators: Harry Philbrick, Edna S. Tuttleman Director of the Museum at PAFA, and Jodi Throckmorton, Associate Curator at the San Jose Museum of Art
