Figure as Inspiration: Paintings and Drawings From The Museum's Collection
March 16 - May 7, 2000
From the Museum's collections, Boca Raton Museum of Art presents a selection of works by 20th century artists who take the figure as inspiration, creating images as wide ranging and diverse as the cool pop look of Alex Katz to the satisfling, realist works of Raphael Soyer, and the gridded, painted photographic images of Chuck Close. (left: Alex Katz (1927- ), Samantha, 1978, Aquatint on paper, 66 1/4 x 28 1/2 inches, Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Steinman.)
