Painters of Nudes
A key figure in the sharp-focus realist movement, Philip Pearlstein was a leader in the early 1960s of the revival of figure painting in America.  He experimented briefly with landscapes and then concentrated on the realistic depiction of the nude figure, a traditional subject that had almost vanished from the contemporary art world.  His work is characterized by a non-traditional informality, unexpected postures, and unusual perspectives including the radical cropping of figures.
