>>2296166 One of the best draftsmen around. His painting is rather uninspired and weak imo, just muddy mushy messes. His sculpture is okay but nothing special.
I don't see why he would be considered one of the greats though. Nothing he's doing is outstanding enough to make him go down in history, and he brings nothing new to the table. Plus his real strength lies in his initial studies and his drawings. He has no finished work of any real value.
Yes, I kind of agree with this, but he is still alive: he might end up finally discovering a greater truth, a greater sense of humanity, and be able to communicate the inner lives of his figures. I hope he keeps getting better and eventually reaches something of a Rembrandt like profundity.
>>2296210 Maybe you should look at someone like Odd Nerdrum instead then. I think Nerdrum is doing stronger things than Liberace, though I still wouldn't consider him to be up there with Rembrandt or the other greats.
Most of his works are just studies and portraits. I think Liberace as well as most of the famous "figurative" artists today, including the Russian school, have the fault that their art are meant to appeal to artists, especially learning artists.
