San Francisco

Lionel Talbot and Daniel Mendelowitz

Maxwell Galleries

Talbot’s first one-man show, of children and their pets in intimate settings. Although not actually derivative, there is a suggestion of both Renoir and Toulouse-Lautrec in Talbot’s intimisms, and even a bit of Soutine in one picture of a knowing old butler serving a sippy. It is Mendelowitz’s eighth solo show in San Francisco and presents his impressions on a recent trip to Italy. To accommodate atmospheric changes he adopted a free-floating style of application that has cost him his usual crispness.
