John Currin, ‘The Danes’, 2006, Gagosian

About John Currin

American painter John Currin intertwines the beautiful and grotesque with equal measure in his caricatures of lusty, doe-eyed female figures often portrayed in gross proportions that both enchant and repel. Drawing on a broad range of cultural influences from Renaissance oil paintings to 1950s women’s magazine ads and contemporary politics, his work is notable for its mix of technical virtuosity with mash-ups of high and low culture.

American, b. 1962, Boulder, Colorado, based in New York, New York
