Yigal Ozeri: Recent Work

Israeli painter Yigal Ozeri’s portraits are so realistic that viewers would be forgiven for confusing them with photographs. His young female subjects, alone in dramatic landscapes, are often bathed in light and fashionably dressed, as if styled for a fashion magazine spread. Ozeri’s mid-career retrospective in a pair of Manhattan galleries includes recent work and never-before-seen portraits.
