About William Bailey

Although his still lifes, landscapes, and figure paintings seem to have been painted from life, William Bailey explains: “The paintings I do are not from life—they’re made up, but they’re made up from real situations. Real objects. . . . So all these things come from my memory” Best known for his still lifes, like Soldier (2011), Bailey focuses on formal relationships, refinement of surface and harmony of color.

American, b. 1930, Council Bluffs, Iowa, based in Connecticut; Italy
