George Tooker | Public Life

George Tooker (1920-2011) was an artist both ahead of his time and very much from another era. Using the classical medium of tempura, he depicted modern life in all its stark, unsettling beauty. Here we see Tooker's view of modern "public" life, his political art that shows modern life as largely confining and oppressive.
