Men Painting Women
Art Exhibit

In this exhibit I have brought together 5 Florida male artists whose work is mainly focused on the female form. Herbie Martin, Leonardo Montoya, Wilson Romero, Weldon Ryan, and Robert Shirk. Each artist approaches depicting woman from very different perspectives, both artistically and intellectually. The exhibit is curently up at the Downtown Orlando Library through August 2020. The library is open Mon through Sat 10am to 6pm. It is located in downtown Orlando at: 101 E Central Blvd, Orlando, FL.

There is a rich history of male artists painting women. Some of the most important male artists in western history are known specifically for their paintings of women. Botticelli's 'Birth of Venus' in the mid-1480s. Leonardo da Vinci's 'Mona Lisa' in 1505. Vermeer's 'Girl with a Pearl Earring'in 1665. James McNeill Whistler's Arrangement in Grey and Black No. 1 (Whistler's Mother) in 1871. Gustav Klimt's 'Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I' in 1907. Andy Warhol's 'Shot Blue Marilyn' in 1964.

Here is a short video of Robert Shirk explaining why he put together this exhibit "Men Painting Women".
