Who ARTed: Weekly Art History for All Ages

Ivan Albright - The Picture of Dorian Gray

March 28, 2022

For this week's episode, I was joined by Kelly Henrikson, art teacher at Park Junior High, to talk about Ivan Albright. 

Ivan Albright is considered to be a great macabre painter. He is known for his portraits and still lives that have a sense of rot showing the frailty of life. His style is considered magical realism. He meticulously rendered portraits that were unlike anything else in his day. In this episode we discussed the painting he created for the film adaptation of Oscar Wilde's Picture of Dorian Gray. 

As always, you can find pictures of the work on the website www.whoartedpodcast.com

The Picture of Dorian Gray is housed at The Art Institute of Chicago
