About the work
Provenance
Herbert Barnett
American, 1910–1972
Follow

New England artist Herbert Barnett’s oil paintings depict the majestic landscapes of Cape Ann, country still lifes, and portraits of mid-century figures. Barnett references the work of Cézanne and early cubists, with contrasting directional planes of color and sometimes-banal subject matter. Barnett’s work is characterized by visible evidence of its own process, with initial sketches discernible in dark paint. A prodigal painter, Barnett had his first of many international solo shows at 17, eventually becoming Dean of the Cincinnati Art Academy.
