Mexican-American, b. 1960

Claudia Baez’s paintings are steeped in the history of art and literature, referencing everything from German Expressionism to Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time. Baez’s series “PAINTINGS after PROUST” (2013–14) portrays six centuries of artists mentioned in Proust’s book, offering interpretations twice removed from their original sources. She renders the artists in styles ranging from the rich renditions of Titian to abstracted versions of the work of Fra Angelico and Johannes Vermeer. Her inspirations also include more contemporary artists—a work appropriating Cindy Sherman’s “Untitled Film Stills” series (1977–80) appeared in an issue of the magazine ARTnews.
