A critical and commercial success since the 1970s, Jennifer Bartlett (b. 1941) has become one of the most visionary and influential artists of our time.  In the words of New York Times critic John Russell, Bartlett’s art “enlarges our notion of time, and of memory, and of change, and of painting itself.”  Her abundant intelligence and inventiveness allow her to synthesize diverse sources and styles, and imbue her paintings with expressive life and moral imagination. Included in this handsome volume are an intimate interview with the artist and an excerpt from History of the Universe, Bartlett’s first novel, giving further insight into the thought processes of this uniquely creative artist.

Klaus Ottmann is director of the Center for the Study of Modern Art and curator at large, The Phillips Collection. Terrie Sultan is director of the Parrish Art Museum. Jennifer Bartlett is an artist.
