Figurative painting must be taken up for reassessment, believes the English author, art critic and painter, Timothy Hyman. With 'The World New Made - Figurative Painting in the Twentieth Century' he explores the works of more than 50 painters and presents a resistance to conventional narratives about modern art. Hyman will offer a narrative about art, more with the human being at the center.
Structured not as a survey, but as in-depth studies of more than 130 specific works of art, Timothy Hyman brings to the fore these often marginalized artists, among others: Alice Neel and Balthus, Max Beckmann and Frida Kahlo, Marsden Hartley and Charlotte Salomon, Bhupen Khakhar and Jacob Lawrence.
