The Friday Evening Nudes

Tonight I feature (and quickly) the nudes of American figurative painter George Tooker, whose work is generally associated with the Magic Realism and Social Realism movements.

We're planning a trip to NYC and a visit to The Whitney Museum of American Art, where a sampling of Tooker's work will be featured in the exhibition Real/Surreal, along with other artists of the same bend.

A native of Brooklyn, New York, Tooker lived and worked in Windsor, Vermont. His religious panel works hang in the St. Francis of Assisi Parish, of which Tooker was an avid member. We're planning a visit there this weekend. That should provide enough material for a more comprehensive post on George Tooker.









Here you go and off I go to dinner! To my American friends and family, have a safe holiday weekend. To everyone peace and love and lots of sunshine. After a very long rainy spell, it looks like we're going to have fine weather in Western New England, finally!
