George Tooker was an American figurative painter whose work was usually identified with Social Realism and Magic (Magical) Realism, which is a little less known outside art circles.

Tooker used the classic Renaissance medium of egg tempra (a demanding and painstaking medium to render and control) to create his paintings that envoked issues of dehumanizing forces of modern society.

Tooker recently passed away several weeks ago in March 27, 2011.
