OMG os anos 80 no seu melhor!!!
The brilliant career of Patrick Nagel, one of America's most significant contemporary artists, ended in February 1984 with his death at the age of 38, but a rich legacy of paintings, drawings, graphics and sculpture remains. Ever since 1974, when his work first achieved prominence in Playboy magazine, the art of Patrick Nagel has been widely admired, exhibited and collected. With over 80 thousand people owning at least one Nagel's limited-edition works, his best-selling lithographs are graphic touchstone of an era. Nagel's use of silhouette, bold line, and unusual angles of vision recalls the Japanese woodblock print. His process was one of simplification, a stripping away in order to achieve a stronger impact with fewer elements. His images are formal yet decorative. His women are the quintessential women of the 80's. A so-called popular artist, he became a creator of fine art.
