New Irving Petlin Show in Paris


Last night Nicole & I were at the vernissage /opening of an exhibition of new paintings (pastels and oils) by Irving Petlin, one of our absolutely favorite workers in the field of visual arts — and one of the most literate painters I know. It was as always a major treat, and though I am partial to his pastel works — he is without a doubt the contemporary master in that medium — it was fascinating to see his return to oils, at moments stark statements in/of red or blue, & at others closer, more subtle & playful approximations of the pastels.

If in Paris between now & the end of October, do not miss this show, curated by Nadine Fattouh at Galerie Jacques Leegenboek, 33 rue de Lille, Paris 75007 .
