Eric Fischl: The Process of Painting followed by Carrie Mae Weems: Speaking of Art Lecture

February 4 at 12:30 p.m.
West Building Lecture Hall  

Eric Fischl works in various media — paint, photography, and watercolor — while revealing his influences, including Auguste Rodin and Thomas Eakins. “I am interested in the relationship that a person has with their body . . . that’s the thing I find the most compelling about watching people,” he explains. This film is coproduced with the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. (Edgar Howard, 2012, 38 minutes)
    Based on a discussion by the noted American photographer and artist, Carrie Mae Weems: Speaking of Art reviews Weems’s entire body of work, including the Family Pictures and Stories series, The Kitchen Table Series, The Louisiana Project, and much more. (Edgar Howard and Muffie Dunn, 2012, 29 minutes)
