Findlay Galleries is pleased to present the exhibition Figures: Now & Then, on view at our Palm Beach. This exhibition uses the human figure as the lens through which a variety of painting styles and themes can be explored and better understood. The eye and mind are highly attuned to observing, reading, and interpreting body language, making the human figure a focal point of artistic creation from the earliest onset of our culture. How an artist and style adapt to the challenge of capturing the nuances of the human figure as it communicates the inner life of the subject is part of the artistry that makes figurative painting an enduring theme.
As a reflection of Findlay Galleries’ deep understanding and selection of works in the representative category, this exhibition includes artists with styles ranging from Realism to Modernism. Each artist takes a unique approach, while sharing in their achievement the attainment of a beauty that makes the invisible visible. We invite viewers to enjoy works by Beltran Bofill, Dimitry Gerrman, Hugo Grenville, Le Pho, Henri Matisse, Charles Neal, Nicola Simbari, Peter von Artens and Vu Cao Dam.
