Artist as Leader

A Conversation with Harman-Eisner Artist-in-Residence Eric Fischl.

In this session, Fischl discusses details — both ones you can see and many that he rejected — of several of his iconic paintings. You'll hear how the many layers of paint and snubbed out images evolved into his paintings and what was going on in his life, and psyche, during the process.
