Who said that figuration in painting is dead? Certainly not Artsper!

Although abstract and conceptual art seem to dominate the art market, the most expensive artwork in the world, Francis Bacon’s Three Studies of Lucian Freud, is a figurative work.

Figurative art has its galleries, its supporters and its collectors. Even in the auction houses, we can discover this particular passion for abstract painting; for a long time, abstraction has been left aside as it was considered not to be fit for progress, or even reactionary.

Around 1910, Duchamp wanted to kill painting. That didn’t work out! Young painters are back in the game, and here is a selection of 10 exciting works.

Intentional references to great classic and modern masters, reinterpretation of genres and techniques, crossing of perspectives… Figurative painting still has a lot to say!
