Rochester, NY – This MAG exhibition brings together 34 powerful
American and European works, all created since the 1950s, that explore the
biological, psychological or spiritual volatility of the human figure.

The works, by such painters as Georg Baselitz, Hyman Bloom, Willem de Kooning,
Eric Fischl, Lucien Freud, Alice Neel, Pablo Picasso, Jenny Saville and Julian
Schnabel, employ a wide range of painterly effects to suggest the carnal
properties of human flesh, as well as its metaphorical significance. MAG is one
of only three tour stops for this show.
