Honeymoon Nude, 1998
The Cripple, 1997
John Currin (1962-) is an American artist living and working in New York City.
Currin’s work focuses primarily on the composition of the human form, and is often physically and erotically charged. You can also see how the artist is clearly influenced by the paintings of the Old Masters, particularly the Mannerists (see Thanksgiving, and then take a look at Parmigianino’s Madonna dal Collo Lungo. Or Honeymoon Nude, then Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus etc etc.)
