Paintings by Robert McGinnis

Robert McGinnis has a great touch if its comes to drawings. His drawings are sexy and sensual, the girls are always hot and the guys are looking tough. There isn’t a better combination, don’t you think? He created classic films posters for James Bond, Breakfast At Tiffany’s, Arabesque, Barbarella and illustrations for more then 1200 paperback book covers. His site is “temporarily retired” so as he I guess, McGinnis was born in 1926. Robert McGinnis

“his drawings are sexy and sensual”.. you have got to be joking. They are patronising, cliche ridden rubbish. I havent seen such a narrow emotional range since i had the misfortune of looking at a Jack Vetriano painting. This “art” is truely awefull.

Steve is an idiot.

to quote ’steve’: “his drawings are sexy and sensual”.. you have got to be joking. They are patronising, cliche ridden rubbish. I havent seen such a narrow emotional range since i had the misfortune of looking at a Jack Vetriano painting. This “art” is truely awefull.

In itself a cliché comment of fine art patronisation. Given ‘the death of the author’ granted your entitled to your opinion. Ef you believe ‘ this “art is truely aweful”‘ then many of us will reserve the right to withdraw your opinion whilst you appreciate what you believe is your boundary pushing art. This work is likely to be more aesthetically pleasing to most then not, and find it hard to deny they have a ’sexual’ aura, so i’m unsure of where you based your flame. Pastiche it may be and no it probably doesn’t push many boundaries but they are still beautiful pictures created through expressive brushstrokes. You have come across as one of two persons; either someone with no idea, or someone who thinks they have too much of an idea, i don’t care for your opinion if you are of either disposition. Shame you posted.

These are lovely. I am sure there may be people who are better but I dont see their work at this moment. Right now I see this and I am loving it.

I am sorry that Jack feels this way. I feel that you have been misinformed. It’s misdiagnosed as cliche’. My friend he in many aspects created if not improved this style. You may view it as so just for the very reason u concluded. His style had been so copied through the decades that yes this style has become “cliche”. Again I am so sorry you are caught up in the snobbish labelling of art in stead of the just appreciated what it is.

Steve’s unfortunate blathering as regards the luscious art of McGinnis is indicative of a common weakness of connoisseurship amongst the general population. Too many do not understand the distinction between taste and quality in the arts. Taste is the native, personal response of an individual to an artifact – an entitlement we all share, while quality of art is based on a number of factors, all of which are expansive beyond any one individual and include things such as informed consensus and peer accreditation. Steve has the right to not like McGinnis’ work, or even hate it, but to proceed beyond this and openly proclaim the work to be rubbish is the act of a fool. McGinnis is one of the most respected and admired illustrators of his day and, along with Frank McCarthy, masterfully forged a graphic pop-cultural iconography for 1960s American society. The art of both men instantly and forever will call to mind that decade’s fictionalizations incorporating glamorized aspects of the Cold War, Carnaby Street fashion, the upper-class jet-set, Kennedy’s Camelot, sexual liberation and the exploits of chic anti-heroes such as James Bond, Derek Flint and Travis McGee. Just because you don’t “get it” Steve does not give you the power to turn good art bad. McGinnis lives on in full glory.
