One of the leading figurative painters of his generation, Currin’s influences range from Italian and Northern Renaissance paintings to popular illustrations from the mid-20th century. From portraits of older women, buxom girls, nudes with elongated bodies, to group scenes of domestic life, his works are characterised by baroque gestures and detailed backgrounds that startle the viewer into a reconsideration of the tradition of painting. His “old master” techniques and individual style have earned him accolades from critics and collectors worldwide.
