Flesh

Painting | The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, United-States | Friday 4 May 2018 - Sunday 5 August 2018

Chicago native Ivan Albright (1897–1983) remains one of the most provocative artists of the 20th century, a “master of the macabre” famous for his richly detailed paintings of ghoulish subjects. The 1928 painting, Flesh, announced the theme that obsessed the artist throughout his career: the decaying human body. Late in life, he continued urging himself to "make flesh more like flesh than ever has been made before; make flesh close, close, and closer, until you feel it.”
