"When I was a little kid I was fascinated by Red Skelton and Marcel Marceau, the French mime. I was fascinated by the possibility of being able to entertain by being someone who got a costume and took us to another reality. I did a drawing of Red Skelton as a clown from a newspaper photograph and I mailed it to him. I was probably six, and he sent back a black-and-white photograph signed, 'For Bo. Thank you. Your friend, Red Skelton.' For a little kid in Georgia to be able to get a response from a celebrity was a huge deal. It was like, wow, my drawing affected someone who is famous! That made me think I could interact in a different kind of way with the world."
Bo Bartltett, interviewed by Jack Byer in Bo Bartlett: Paintings 1981-2010.

Artwork by Bo Bartlett. Contributions by Suzi Gablik, Charles Butler. Text by Al Harris-Fernandez, Sylvia Yount.

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.
