Contemporary Art: Nudes With And Without Animal Masks @ Betty Cunningham Gallery, New York

(Drivebycuriosity) - It is said that criminals come back to the site of crime. It seems that artists come back to their motifs of the past. Betty Cuningham Gallery on New York´s Lower East Side (15 Rivington Street bettycuninghamg) has an exhibition of recent paintings by Philip Pearlstein coupled with an exhibiton of his Canergie Tech years (around 1950) together with Andy Warhol and Dorothy Cantor (through February 13, 2016 pearlstein ).

Above you can see Pearlstein`s newest paintings. All from oil on canvas from 2015. These three are filling the walls of an extra room, the gallery’s new and additional space, SIDECAR, at 11 Rivington Street, next door to the main gallery.

Above Pearlstein´s older paintings you can find in the main gallery.

But Philip Pearlstein created more in his long working live. Above his painting  "Dollar Sign" (1949-1950, Casein on masonite).

Above "Untitled" by Dorothy Cantor  (1952, oil on canvas). The artist studid together with Pearlstein. Later she married and became Mrs. Pearlstein, giving up professional painting..

The gallers shows one painting by Andy Warhol, who also studied with Pearlstein at Carnegie Tech:  "Portrait of Helene Verin" (1980, Acrylic and silkscreen ink on canvas). Isn`t she pretty?
