when figurative painting returned with a vengeance, in particular via the works of Neo-Expressionist artists like Julian Schnabel and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Since, figurative painting has continued its resurgence, and its current forms feature a wide range of experimental forms, compositions and subjects. Examples include the art-historically informed portraits of Currin and Kehinde Wiley, the blurred memories of Gerhard Richter and Luc Tuymans, and the reduced figuration of Marcel Dzama, Dana Schutz, and Marlene Dumas.

Laura and I both recieved our M.S. degrees from Pratt Institute. It is a great educational school that emphasizes real world working teachers that are working in the top positions in their fields. They emphasize education more than facilities and doesn't have a football program. They just turn out the top professionals in archetecture, design, art, Library science, etc. A society is known by its culture. I'm glad they received this money. Pratt always gives some of that money back to its students in fellowships and scholarships, it uses money wisely for the education of future students. Lessons learnd by a top industrialist. It is one of the top 5 art schools in the country and we should apply their principles to our own. RECORD $1 MILLION RAISED AT ANNIVERSARY GALA The 125th Anniversary Gala honored the Pratt Family, Maximilian Josef Riedel, Julie Taymor, and Kehinde Wiley, raising $1,070,000.
