Artist Talk with Jerome Witkin

Jerome Witkin is recognized as one of the most formidable contemporary figurative painters. Critically, Jerome Witkin generates notable praise, as exampled by the L.A. Times citing his work to be “a break-through in post-Cold-War art.” The San Francisco Chronicle’s Kenneth Baker cites that “Witkin’s only peer is Lucian Freud…. Witkin is one of the finest realist painters working today…. He stages pictorial dramas that grapple with contemporary historical crises and moral pressures, while offering a lavish physical display of his medium.” Witkin’s works can be found in the permanent collection of prominent museums around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., and the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.
