George McNeil: The Painter’s Painter
After more than 50 years in the New York art world, George McNeil’s expressionist paintings came to the forefront, along with Neo-Expressionists, such as Basquiat and Schnabel, who emerged in the early 80’s. Rooted in Cubism, his large and ambitious paintings incorporate recognizable imagery that is playful, inventive and fresh. Somewhat reminiscent of Picasso and Dubuffet, McNeil’s work, however, exhibits a uniquely American flavor. On this program we see a large show at the uptown Hirschl & Adler Gallery and visit him in his Brooklyn studio where he demonstrates one of his painting methods. Interviews with the artist, fellow painter, and noted teacher Louis Finkelstein are also included.
