Barkley L. Hendricks : Birth of The Cool

I headed to the Santa Monica Museum of Art today for the Barkley Hendricks exhibit and I was blown away...The picture above titled "Sweet Thang" is the perfect example of his work... The light, the shading, the attention to detail is absolutely amazing...His paintings are so clear and crisp you'd think you were looking at a photograph...He captures the fashion and attitude of the times and of the people with such ease it can do nothing but amaze you...If you are in LA I suggest you catch the exhibit before it ends 8/22 its well worth it...
