Eric Fischl

American painter, sculptor, and printmaker

Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Fischl is known for his large canvases depicting uncomfortably intimate scenes of middle-class suburban life and sexuality depicted in a naturalistic style. Although his work has been called Neo-Expressionist, his reliance on photography suggests a debt to the Photo-Realist movement of the 1960s and 1970s.
