9781882650156: Bo Bartlett

A midcareer figurative painter with a distinctive and haunting narrative vision, Bo Bartlett composes large-scale contemporary portraits and landscapes that combine the memories and impressions of his upbringing, his faith, his family, and his friends. Presenting iconic American subjects subtly underlined with open-ended questions, Bartlett implies that there is a chance for magic and wonder in everyday life. In paintings titled Old Glory, Self Portrait on Wheaton, Hiroshima, The Good Old Days, A Place by the Ocean, Partisan, and The Dowry, he offers both a straightforward narrative and the possibility for more complex interpretations and responses. This volume is the first monograph on the artist.

About the Author:

Bo Bartlett was born in Columbus, Georgia, in 1955. He married his high-school sweetheart, Melonie, and started a family, all of whom figure predominantly in his work. Bartlett studied at the University of the Arts and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the bastion of American realism painting, and apprenticed under Nelson Shanks. In the tradition of Thomas Eakins, he also studied anatomy at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and Thomas Jefferson University. In 1993 Bartlett received a Pew Fellowship in the Arts.
