Fischl is one of the most active and influential figurative painters working at the end of the 20th century. His figures, most often nude and caught in compromising or alienating positions, are blunt portrayals of the human body. In this work, essays by noted art critic Danto and Border Crossings editor Robert Enright provide context for the artist's work; Enright also arranged "Fischl on Fischl," a chapter culled from interviews with the artist. Comedian, writer, and well-known contemporary art collector Steve Martin discusses "Barbeque," a Fischl piece from his own collection. The essays, and 233 works selected here, present the full range of Fischl's work from 1970 to the present. His more recent work, portraits of the famous, is compelling in a genre that is often superseded by photography. An extensive bibliography is included.
