Essays by Richard Armstrong and Patterson Sims.

Born in 1924, the work of Philip Pearlstein has an important place in contemporary art. Beyond the paintings of nudes for which he is best known, the spectrum of his art includes unusually interesting drawings from sketches to highly finished large-scale watercolors and over a hundred print editions. His way of seeing callas the viewer to slow down; that’s one of the reasons his work is so tough and unflinchingly modern.
