Eric Fischl (New York March 9 1948 -)


Eric Fischl (American, b. 1948) is one of the most well-known contemporary American artists. His paintings, sculptures, printmaking often depict both the mundane and the darker undertones of American suburbia. Fischl’s work is typified by renditions of chance encounters in daily life, often challenging the status quo. This work is part of a series of paintings Fischl undertook with Brooke Shields, of which she says: “He eventually came up with the idea of me playing twins who couldn’t be more polarized. There was the perfectly dressed twin and the trashy twin. It was so much fun and inspired him to do a whole series.”
