WOMAN READING/ 1970/ Will Barnet
My muse, a print of this hangs over my desk. I see it dozens of times a day. It is always dynamic, pure, full of zest, and life. This is a portrait of the artist's daughter, reading a book, with the seemingly coziest cat ever.
Will Barnet, known for beautifully stylized portraits, died on Tuesday, November 13, 2012, at his home in Manhattan. He was 101 years old.
