‘Flora and Fauna: New Paintings by James Russell May’

For an artist well known for his nudes, James Russell May’s animals are a fun revelation. More stylized than his humans are, they show up as stand-alone subjects in “Flora and Fauna.” But he has not abandoned his grand mythological nudes. Both plants and animals are shown interacting with people we have come to recognize as those who can be painted by only Mays.
