Person Place Thing Episode 77: Eric Fischl


Plays: 431

Eric Fischl came to fame in the New York art world of the nineteen-eighties (well yeah, not the eighteen-eighties) an experience he describes in Bad Boy: My Life on and off the Canvas. One thing it omits: we went to school together, at Cal Arts, in 1973, but we didn’t know each other then, a detail sure to fascinate… actually, I’m sorry I mentioned it. We spoke at the Port Washington Public Library.
