Beauty and the Beast: The Erotic Art of Ian Hornak - January 24 - April 4, 2014
Beauty and the Beast: The Erotic Art of Ian Hornak showcases a major gift of drawings and paintings from the estate of 20th century American artist Ian Hornak. Hornak (1944 - 2002) lived and worked in New York, where he was one of the founding artists of the Photorealist and the Hyperrealist movements. He is now recognized as one of the preeminent representational artists of his generation. Although best known for his landscapes, Hornak’s early work from the late 1960s often focused on the nude figure, at times combining human and animal anatomy.
Opening reception: Friday, January 24, 5:00 to 7:00 pm, The Kinsey Institute, Morrison Hall. The lecture and reception are free, and refreshments will be provided.
