David Maxim Figure Portraits

Graphics Gallery

David Maxim is an artist whose work is recognized for its great complexity and breadth. Best known for his high-relief constructions and classically developed paintings, Maxim has never been limited to one medium or style. This exhibition features portrait and figure drawings that explore one aspect of his oeuvre. In a special glimpse into the range of Maxim's works, several expressionistic and abstract drawings from the FIA's permanent collection are also on display, including a selection of Maxim's famous drawings of tornadoes.
