Catalogue Note

John Currin's body of work draws from encyclopedic influences ranging from Old Master paintings to pin-up models.  The subtle eroticism in 'Seated Couple' demonstrates the artist's continued exploration of beauty and lust.  The present work was included in the 2006 exhibition '100% Centennial, Collecting CFA' at Carnegie Mellon University.
