Joan Semmel: A Passion for Painting

This program explores the work of an artist who was instrumental in turning painting of women’s bodies into painting about women’s lives. A feminist and chronicler of the female body and sexuality, Semmel makes lush and painterly canvases rarely seen in the art world of the nineties. Seen on this program is an exhibition of her latest canvases that depict the aging female body as seen in the spas and athletic clubs of present day New York. In her SOHO studio, Joan Semmel talks about her work. Also included is an insightful interview with art historian Joana Frueh.
