Item description for George Condo: One Hundred Women by Agnes Husslein-Arco Stacey Schmidt...
Description: "A woman is something you can glorify, you can be horrified by, you can be paranoid in front of, you can love, you can hate." So says painter George Condo, not the first artist to have tackled the subject of Woman and certainly not the last. Nevertheless, Condo's particular brand of cartoonish figurative painting, with its equal debts to Surrealism, Pop Art, and painterly abstraction, has gone a long way to pushing the means through which Woman might be represented. Herewith are One Hundred Women, drawn, painted, and sculpted by the American artist--some of them nudes, some of them portraits, some of them part of large-scale art-historical collages. Each woman bears at least some trace of Condo's signature style, replete with animalistic grotesqueness and stylistic references to such modern masters as Goya, Velazquez, Picasso, and Warhol.
