Phillips Richard, nudes.

Richard Phillips (American, 1963) is known for his portraits and connections to major celebrities . Phillips was born in Marblehead, MA, but works and resides in New York. He received a BFA from Boston University and an MFA from Yale in Connecticut in 1986. His paintings often are reminiscent of Art Deco and other magazine styles of the 1950s to 1970s. The images, which usually portray beautiful women, are large, glossy, and very realistic. He has traditionally used fashion and even the occasional adult magazine model, and his work has become an important part of modern pop culture.
