Beach scene, Beach: Eric Fischl Aquatint Etching of nude woman in the ocean

1989

$2,500Asking Price

About

A turquoise ocean stretches to the horizon in this erotic Eric Fischl beach scene featuring three nude beachgoers. A wash of translucent sandy beige duplicates the hazy light of a late summer day, softening the ambiguous sexual tension of this expressionist landscape. On the right, a man silhouetted in dark grey gazes downward at his body, while the woman to his left gazes placidly at him. Behind them, a man emerges from the ocean. Fischl creates ambiguous sexual tension between the three figures: are they strangers, or intimately acquainted? The impression of two etching plates evokes a pair of snapshots – incorporating the viewer into the role of voyeur. Fischl’s painterly marks display the transparency and fluidity of a watercolor painting, yet the artist’s command of light and shadow lend this dream-like scene surprising realism. Printed in turquoise, brown, beige, blue, and black, this print is a superlative example of Eric Fischl’s sexually charged, disquieting scenes of everyday American life and leisure. Paper 35.5 x 54 in. / 90 x 137 cm Image 31 x 45.5 in. / 78.75 x 115.5 cm Aquatint etching on wove paper. Signed by the artist, dated 1989, and numbered 66/100 lower right in pencil. Published by Parasol Press.
