Nicole Eisenman

FIGURE DRAWING ATELIER

Whitney Museum of American Art
Painter Nicole Eisenman shares her practice of drawing from live models in a figure drawing class in the galleries of the Whitney Museum. Eisenman investigates contemporary issues through the historically charged mediums of drawing and painting. In her work, she utilizes technical skill and art historical influences to address innovative views on social concerns. While Eisenman’s figurative style references a range of academic traditions--from WPA murals to surrealism--her razor sharp wit and intimate subjects reveal a language that is completely her own.
