The Picture || Vol. 9 || Jacob El Hanani, Adam Kirsch The Picture

    • Arts

In the ninth episode of "The Picture" podcast, Jacob El Hanani speaks with writer Adam Kirsch about the artist's exhibition of recent works on canvas, now on view at Acquavella Galleries in New York.

Jacob El Hanani is often referred to as “the grandfather of micro-drawing.” His exquisitely detailed drawings, each done by hand, serve as remarkable records of his craftsmanship and decades-long dedication to line-making. Born in Casablanca and raised in Israel, he has lived and worked in the same SoHo studio for nearly 50 years.

Guggenheim fellow Adam Kirsch previously served as poetry critic at The New Republic. His recent writings have been featured in The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, and Tablet, where he is a contributing editor.

"Jacob El Hanani: Recent Works on Canvas" is on view May 5–June 18, 2021, at Acquavella Galleries.
