Jennifer Bartlett (American, b.1941) is a world-renowned American artist, best known for paintings and prints done in her signature style, combining representational and abstract art.

Bartlett received her artistic training at Mills College and the Yale School of Art and Architecture during the 1960s, when Minimalism was at the height of its popularity. This influence is apparent in much of Bartlett’s work, particularly in her most well-known installation Rhapsody, an epic piece made up of 987 12 x 12-inch white-enameled steel panels adorned with a silk-screened, graph paper-like grid, filled in with Testor paint. The dots of paint make up four universal motifs—house, tree, mountain, and ocean—as well as abstract geometric elements, such as circles, squares, and lines. Bartlett uses this simple imagery as a vehicle for her experimentation with the making of the art itself. She explores the various methodologies used to convey the artist’s idea to the viewer, as well as questions of form: what happens when a painting has no edges?

Bartlett’s work is represented in a large number of public and private collections, including The Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C., and the Tate Gallery in London.

Bartlett lives and works in New York.
