Facing the Artist: Portraits by John Jonas Gruen

Flavorwire ran a gallery today of portraits John Jonas Gruen shot of his artist peers over the past five decades. Apparently, East Coast artists of his generation spent a lot of time at the beach. Somehow there can be a West Coast notion that the beach is for the superficial and well-adjusted, but that is not bicoastal. Probably because you are more likely to be pensive on a chilly shoreline and more likely to show off a bikini body when the water is warm. The Whitney Museum in New York is currently show retrospective exhibition of portraits shot by John Jonas Gruen.
