A pioneer in painting, Elizabeth Murray’s distinctively shaped canvases break with the art-historical tradition of illusionistic space in two-dimensions. Jutting out from the wall and sculptural in form, Murray’s paintings and watercolors playfully blur the line between the painting as an object and the painting as a space for depicting objects. Breathing life into domestic subject matter, Murray’s paintings often include images of cups, drawers, utensils, chairs, and tables. These...

A passionate, intimate painting of three lovers.   The only known erotic painting by Théodore Géricault features both a woman in white, depicted as an active participant in the amorous act (rather than a passive object as in so many representations), and a nude reclining woman, a nod to the classical tradition of representing repose after lovemaking.  This painting is smaller than a foot at its widest, intended to be viewed up close and in private.
