Jun 6, 2023 - Dec 28, 2023

The Center for Figurative Painting will be closed April 2023 as we are preparing for the launch of our new Exhibition- "Masterworks of American Post-War Landscape Painting" that will open to the public on June 6, 2023. 

The Center for Figurative Painting was formed to provide public exhibition and display of Post-War American Representational painting.

Its sole ambition is an effort to further the appreciation, study and enjoyment of this genre among the general public, artists and educators alike.   

Post-War American Representational painting, often overshadowed by other Post-War American art movements, is an important art movement in its own right and deserves a museum dedicated to its display and further study.    

The Artists represented in the collection are different, yet they all have fulfilled the accomplishment of our greatest painters throughout history; which is to successfully incorporate modern vocabulary into a timeless language. These Artists, regardless of the changing fashions of our times, consistently upheld their own personal standards and ambitions.   

Amassed through extensive research, the collection represents the pursuit of American representational painting at its highest levels. The Center and its collection are an assurance that heartfelt painting, steeped in the tradition of an earlier post-war American generation, is available to each and every one of us.
