Glaser studied etching under the Italian still-life painter Giorgio Morandi, and has cited Morandi and Picasso as his two major artistic influences. His most famous poster, one of Bob Dylan, referenced a self-portrait by the French Dadaist Marcel Duchamp, and this masterwork, my personal favorite, is a direct homage to the Belgian Surrealist, Rene Magritte.
“I’m interested in all the things that have happened in the visual world…my influences are more outside the profession than inside it. I never use the profession as a guide for what I aspire to. I’ve always believed that you could do everything.” Easy to say, when you’ve done everything.
