Dana Schutz is a contemporary American artist known for her painterly translations of intangible concepts into dynamic compositions. Schutz's paintings pose pictorial questions with humor and imagination, while nodding toward the art historical precedents of Max Beckmann and Maria Lassnig. She received her BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art and her MFA from Columbia University. Schutz has exhibited extensively, in both the United States and abroad. At the 2017 Whitney Biennial, the artist’s painting Open Casket (2016) stirred considerable backlash and controversy upon its unveiling. Schutz currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Her works are held in the collections The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, among others.
