This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Eric Fischl. His new memoir "Bad Boy," co-written with Michael Stone, has just been published by Crown. In the book, Fischl talks about growing up on Long Island, his mother’s alcoholism and suicide, his discovery of art, his meteoric rise in the New York art world during the cocaine-fueled 1980s, how he was motivated to become sober and how his travels and life experiences have fueled his work in the decades since.

The first painting is Fischl’s 2000 The Bed, The Chair, Jet Lag, one of his best paintings of the 2000s.On this week’s MAN Podcast, Fischl and host Tyler Green discuss this painting, its light, that marvelous chair and its relationship to Andre Derain’s great 1907 Bathers at the Museum of Modern Art.
