Notable contemporary Drawings

Portrait of a young artist (Jean-Michel Basquiat) by Julian Schnabel, 1996. This artwork is a portrait of Jean-Michel Basquiat, an influential artist from the 1980s New York art scene. The portrait is a close-up of Basquiat’s face, rendered in Schnabel’s signature style of thickly layered paint, creating a sense of depth and texture. The painting captures the intensity of Basquiat’s gaze, as well as his vulnerability.

Untitled (Joan Mitchell) by Kerry James Marshall, 2018. This artwork is a portrait of the abstract expressionist painter Joan Mitchell. Marshall’s vibrant use of color and pattern creates a sense of energy and movement in the painting, reflecting Mitchell’s own dynamic approach to painting. The portrait captures the essence of Mitchell’s creative spirit, celebrating her contributions to the world of art.

Self-Portrait with Two Circles by Rembrandt, c. 1665-1669. This artwork is a self-portrait by the Dutch master Rembrandt. The painting is notable for its use of light and shadow, which creates a sense of depth and drama. Rembrandt’s face is rendered with incredible detail, capturing both his physical likeness and his inner spirit. The two circles in the background of the painting have been interpreted in many different ways, adding to the enigmatic quality of the artwork.

The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali, 1931. This artwork is a surrealist masterpiece by the Spanish artist Salvador Dali. The painting features melting clocks and other surreal elements, creating a dreamlike atmosphere. The image has become iconic, representing the idea of the fluidity of time and the power of the subconscious mind.

Popeye by Jeff Koons, 2002. This artwork is a sculpture by the American artist Jeff Koons. The sculpture depicts the cartoon character Popeye, rendered in Koons’ signature style of glossy, reflective surfaces. The artwork is a commentary on consumer culture and the commodification of art, as well as a celebration of popular culture and its enduring influence.

The Tree by Piet Mondrian, 1908. This artwork is an early work by the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian. The painting depicts a tree in a landscape, rendered in a highly stylized, abstract manner. The artwork is notable for its use of color and geometric shapes, which would become the hallmark of Mondrian’s later work. The Tree represents a pivotal moment in the artist’s career, as he began to move away from traditional representational painting and towards a more abstract style.
