Closely observed and meticulously drawn figures

Robert Schultz (American b. 1953), Figure in Robe , 2002, graphite, 14 x 9 3/4 in. Grafton T. Tanquary
On view at the Chazen till November 16.

Robert Schultzís figures, mostly nudes, are closely observed and meticulously drawn, resulting in exquisite textures, highlights, and shadows. This selection of his work shows the development of the artistís style and technique. Schultz portrays the body with extremely fine detail. His drawings, most in graphite, accurately represent the human frameís response to gravity and sometimes a single prop (often rope or fabric).

Schultz is on the faculty at MATC and works mainly in his studio overlooking State Street. A fully illustrated catalogue is available in the Chazen Museum Shop.
