Eric Fischl

A prolific and productive painter, photographer, and sculptor since 1979, Fischl is one of the most influential artists of our time. Drawing comparisons with Goya, Picasso, and Degas, Fischl's legendary contributions to the art world will survive the ages.

He first gained the art world's attention in the late 1970s for his depictions of the dark side of suburban life. Fischl's paintings from that time dealt with issues of early sexuality and voyeurism, while his most recent large-scale canvases focus on the tradition of bull fighting. Despite the diversity of subject matter, Fischl's work is consistent in its exploration of human relationships. Married to artist April Gornik, Fischl is a senior critic at the New York Academy of Art and a fellow at both the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
