Michael Hurson

 Michael Hurson  1941-2007   Study for Portrait of Robert Moskowitz  1976  pastel and colored pencil on paper   26.5" x 18.8"  


Hurson was an early art hero to me in the 70's. Saw his work in Chicago for the first time and was taken by his simple yet evocative cartoon style. New Image painting was just coming into the mainstream and he seemed to exemplify the best of it.
