The series ‘Corrida in Ronda’ by Eric Fischl depicts a cultural pastime that interests me greatly. These are paintings that I think Ernest Hemingway, a great fan of bullfighting, would have really enjoyed. Like Hemingway, Fischl is an American artist and is based in New York City.

‘Corrida in Ronda’ by Eric Fischl captures the majesty (some might say the cruelty) of a famous Spanish sport. The paintings show the respect between man and animal as they circle one another in a dance to the death.
