Woman reading | Will Barnet | 1970

Will Barnet was a key figure in an American movement called Indian space painting. These painters based their semi abstract works in the art of the Native American.

As the artist portrays his relatives and pets in his pictures, many say that Barnet “makes us experience the universal from the personal”. In Woman reading, we see a female laying in bed reading a blue book next to her white cat. Barnet uses huge flat color fields at the same time he simplifies the shapes and details. Thus, he abstracts the motif and, although I don’t like the painting, I consider it effective.
