Hardly another other twentieth-century artist has dealt with the theme of women as intensely and imaginatively as George Condo. This book offers an unprecedented comprehensive survey of his multi-faceted oeuvre.
American painter George Condo has occupied a prominent position in the Western art scene from Cologne to New York for more than twenty years. He regularly succeeds in surprising viewers with his grotesque, often tradition-conscious, and almost classically Surrealistic paintings. Condo's own models and partners in dialogue range from Goya and Velázquez to Picasso and Warhol, in whose Factory he worked briefly during the early 1980s. Along with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Julian Schnabel, he played a key role in the international revival of painting after 1982. This publication focuses on Condo's favorite subject: women. Featuring some fifty paintings, forty drawings, and five sculptures, the book presents a motif that appears in various forms in his art - in nudes, portraits, and art-historical collages. Apart from Picasso and Matisse, no other twentieth-century artist has dealt with this theme as intensely and imaginatively as George Condo.
