Will Barnet Exhibit at the National Academy Museum
The "Will Barnet at 100" exhibit opened last weekend at the newly renovated National Academy Museum in New York City. I wasn't familiar with his painting, but loved the exhibit that spanned his very long, active career. He is still painting and will actually be at the Academy next month for a "conversation! I couldn't find images on the National Academy website, but here is a link to images of his work in a gallery.
I loved his paintings in general and "Atlantis" in particular. It consisted of 15-20 women all standing on a pier overlooking the sea. I painted several of the women in my sketchbook to remember the exhibition. I couldn't find an image of the original to include here, but my friend Pat also sketched it and wrote about it on her blog.
