About this Artwork

Eric Fischl ( *1948, New York) joined the New York’s highly charged and competitiv art world in the 1970s and 1980s with such notorious and controversial paintings as Bad Boy and Sleeper, and reached the front ranks of America artists, in a high-octane downtown art scene that included Andy Warhol, David Salle, Julian Schnabel, and others. It was a world of fashion, fame, cocaine and alcohol that for a time threatened to undermine all that Fischl had achieved. Fichl gained terrible knowledge about bad experiences in his childhood, living in a society in the early 1980s, where women uncovered rape and incest as common themes in their lives. During the same period, adult children of alcoholics, supported by alcoholism treatment professionals, began meeting to explore their shared trauma of growing up in dysfunctional families.  Around the same time, unrelated to either movement, illustrations of these survivors’ stories graced the walls of an art gallery in midtown Manhattan.

About Eric Fischl

Eric Fischl’s early Paintings from 1979 to 1989 established him as a postmodern Edward Hopper and significant American artist. In these now classic, voyeuristic scenes of American everyday life in backyard barbeques, beach resorts and intimate interiors, the seemingly banal takes on uncomfortable, and at times ominous tones. Fischl’s creative process, which evolved over time to include photographs that he manipulated in much the same was as he used the glassines, provided a way for him to process and integrate the dissociated memories of a boyhood spent in a violent, alcoholic family, and an entry into manhood marked by the suicide of his mother when he was 21.  The motives that found its way onto his canvases was ambiguous enough to enable him to paint it and relevant enough to his own history to give meaning to experiences that can never really make much sense. Fischl emerged in the 1980s as one of America’s most important figurative painters. In Fischl’s engaging distinctly American canvases, narrative, morality, sexuality, and psychology are preeminent. In the 1990s and 2000s until his most recent paintings, Fischl has turned to multipiece cycles: The Bed, The Chair series, starting with The Philosopher’s Chair; canvases inspired by trips to Italy and India; and the paintings—Fischl terms them “narrative fictions”—of the “Krefeld Project.” These engrossing images have been accomplished with a mastery that has been compared to that of Caravaggio.
