Eric Fischl is an internationally acclaimed painter and sculptor. His artwork is represented in many distinguished museums throughout the world. His extraordinary achievements throughout his career have made him one of the most influential contemporary artists in the world. Born in 1847, Fischl earned his B.F.A. from the California Institute for the Arts in 1972. Although he is well known for his painting, he found that sculpture opened up expressive potential that painting had not. He was fascinated with how sculpted figures by Michelangelo or Rodin could showcase an epic struggle between internal forces reacting to external forces. Like those artists, Fischl seeks to express the memories of human experience in his figures.
