Eric Fischl (American, born 1948)

Eric Fischl is an American contemporary painter, printmaker, and sculptor, most famous for his sexually charged figurative paintings coinciding with the boom of Neo-Expressionism in the 1980s. As such he is often referred to as “the artist of the suburbs,” given that his figurative paintings depict private, taboo scenes from everyday life. His work has also looked to the past of inspiration, including the art of Goya, Picasso, and Hemingway, and the Corrida goyesca de Ronda, the century-old tradition of bullfighting.
