        Giving New Life to Classical Works | Kehinde Wiley: An Economy of Grace

        Explore the Louvre with Kehinde Wiley as he revisits classical paintings to inspire his upcoming exhibition. Wiley stands out in the art world, because he is a young artist making large scale paintings in the tradition of early masters. Wiley gives new life to these classic styles, allowing them to exist in the 21st century with fresh meaning. These painting are large; they are often described as operatic in content and scale, affirming the classical qualities of Wiley's modern works. In his new portrait series, and his first about women, Wiley will emphasize traditional artistic ideas of glamour, fantasy, and beauty.
