Overview

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.
