Old School at Zwirner & Wirth New York

The Zwiner & Wirth Gallery in New York summer exhibition, Old School, presents an imaginative look at Dutch old masters reinterpreted by the phenomenon of contemporary artists appropriating and re-interpreting these old school themes and imagery.

Showing how contemporary painting has borrowed from historical cannons of portaiture creating a very beautiful and thoughtful show. Glen Brown’s paintings with a sultry velvty texture of painting. Glen Brown’s use of Dutch momento mori iconography, of still life and musical instruments. Djordje Ozbolt portrait of a distinguished figure with his hybrid mustache as allusion to our epoch.
