Eric Fischl - The Old Man’s Dog and the Old Man’s Boat


Shelly Fife
I have always loved his work, the atmosphere he creates is consistently strange.

Hugi Hilmarsson
Love how the Dalmatian really makes all the other colours stand out. Imagine if it wasn’t there...

Hans Heiner Buhr
very strange work - the girl preparing the Fishing rod - the alarming sea

i absolutely love Fischl's work!

Jill Alo
Fischl can paint like hardly anyone can! and his odd stressed out people are perfect for the way we all feel now---

Barry Harrison
you're SPOT on, ha! Nothing without the Dalmation...

Nancy LeBrun
Agreed, Barry.

I first saw this in the Saatchi 24 years ago. I wrote a paper on it for Pat Utermolen's class at uni.

Wonder, how will it look like without a dog? ^_^

I love how he pays attention to tan lines!

Delage Sophie
Reality or fiction that's the question in this work

I went to NSCAD when Eric was teaching. His work has changed as he has and all for the better. I have great admiration for his work and art practice.

Saw him at a party for Freya Hansel once in NYC. Smokin a big stogie back in the eighties. I've never thought too much off his work.

All these Art Emperors live based on the death Artist’s Legacies with no doubt. While the Artist is alive, even they don't accept his/her call in any time. Please don’t give me wrong. you can test them yourselves. Mail them for a review or exhibition of your artworks, you will find your applications in a trashcan quite soon. They live in nice mansions or a House of Art with proudly call Art Galleries/Museums and the artists are suffering of poverty and struggling to pay the bills to live. Well. That kind of artist will be very lucky if he/she sells some paintings to those Emperors/Art Collectors, and they call him/her back in 5 to ten years if he/she is still alive or death. The good news will be if he/she is death to make some money but tons of money. They take your paintings and make their own stories about them and make them as an iconic painting and that is the time that their lottery matches for a jackpot. Basically, we all work for them for free. When they call their selves the Emperors, another meaning of that is the Slavery Masters. We create works of art until we are alive with no respect or appreciation and the end, they take advantage of them mercilessly. I am not venge it to discuss deeply but reality is the word of Lord. In the whole history of art, Mark Rothko was realized the exact meaning of Art Emperors which I am talking about.
