Freud died in 2011. He was active until shortly before his death.

Absolutely love Chuck Close's work from his early photo realism to his current pieces.
Another painter Patrick Hughes. The video may not give you the exact effect
but it does look as if you are walking past a 3-d scene (you should be at least 6' away).

Default At the peak of their powers...

The May 2013 issue of Artnews has as its feature article a review of some highly recognized artists who are not only still living, but still producing. There is a separate review of Philip Pearlstein's latest gallery show.

YOU BECOME BETTER WITH AGE

Quote:
New “Old Masters” who have enjoyed gallery and museum shows over the last year include Wayne Thiebaud (92) at Acquavella, Robert Irwin (84) at Pace, Anthony Caro (89) at the Yale Center for British Art, Malcolm Morley (81) at the Parrish Art Museum, Yayoi Kusama (84) at the Whitney Museum, Alex Katz (85) at the Yale School of Art, John Baldessari (81) at Marian Goodman, and Philip Pearlstein (turning 89 on May 24) at Betty Cuningham. Thornton Dial (85) had a retrospective that traveled to several American museums, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art mounted a survey of Jasper Johns (who turns 83 on May 15), Betye Saar (86) filled a room of the National Academy Museum with her birdcage sculptures, and an exhibition of Claes Oldenburg’s (84) work is currently on view at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Yes, and I collect Guy Buffet originals and limited signed prints.

I have a Skye (commissioned when I met her) and a Wessler (met him, too, and he made a nice note on he back of one of his originals for me).
