  Figure painting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Figure painting is a form of the visual arts in which the artist uses a live model as the subject matter of a two-dimensional piece of artwork using paint as the medium.
The live model can be either nude or partly or fully clothed and the painting is a representation of the full body of the model.
It is analogous in most respects to figure drawing, which is usually done in crayon, ink, pencil, watercolor or mixed media on paper.

 The New Figurative Painting, an essay on metanoetic art
On the other hand art as an idea, that is: abstracted out of the object, went through conceptual art and installations and gradually turned in on its own source in bodyart in a display of the fragile source of both art as idea and art as object.
It continues it in the sense that art is nonmanifest and transcends the work of art, thus any form of art can be a suitable vehicle, and since metanoesis is timeless and spaceless, it is present in all cultures and times.
Metanoetic art must for these reasons, as i shall soon elaborate further, be figurative, but figurative in a way, and for reasons, that figurative art has never been before.

  Classical figurative fine art oil paintings & pastels by Richard R Young Art
Predominantly figurative, the tendency of my artwork is towards carefully composed anonymity, capturing the emotions and self belief of the subject, rather than characteristic individual representation.
Art should be viewed, pondered, admired, exhibited, proudly displayed, carefully scrutinized, and in order to benefit to the fullest extent possible, it should be understood from the perspective of its creator - the professional artist.
I personally invite all art lovers of the purest form, whether you're an established or prospective client, a corporate buyer, an individual seeking knowledge, or you're simply interested in discovering more about my exclusive artwork, to come into my world, enjoy my finest works, and find out more.

 Abstract art paintings by unknown and famous artists
Generally abstract art is defined as a break with the idea that paintings should depict reality.
Looking at the post-WW II period, in which abstract art in America was gaining momentum, one may get the impression that American abstract art has been decorative, rather than intellectual, with the emphasis in the paintings of abstract expressionism being on the creative process itself.
Contemporary paintings no longer reflect a contraposition between abstract art and figurative art, but these styles either come together in paintings by contemporary artists, or exist side by side in pure figurative paintings or pure abstract art paintings.

 Arts Unlimited | Arts features | The next big thing? There isn't one
Being Present has already attracted a certain amount of publicity because it has been taken to mark a resurgence of figurative painting, at a time when, according to the catalogue, "figurative painting is criticised by some as a traditional mode of representation that is out of touch with the realities of contemporary life".
The assumption that figurative painting in particular is under threat, or somehow ignored by public and private institutions, or, as one of the artists in Being Present put it last week, "the prevailing argument in the art world seems to be that [representational painting] is an archaic form of expression", is actually a nonsense.
They are infuriated by the absence of certainties in current art, and by what they continually see as artists and museum curators, critics, theorists and dealers "pulling the wool over the public's eyes", in some weird conspiracy.
