Summary In "Jennifer Bartlett", Marge Goldwater has contributed a chronological survey of the paintings that discuss the polarities of control and passion -- the desire to master space, media, subject matter, and draftsmanship that are crucial aspects of the painter's art. In a richly illustrated article, New York art critic Roberta Smith discusses Bartlett's many architectural commissions. These remarkable installations range from a dining room in the home of British collectors to her work for Philip Johnson's AT&T Building. This handsomely designed volume also contains a captivating biographical sketch of this colorful and outspoken artist by the "New Yorker" writer Calvin Tomkins, who gives an account of Bartlett's background, education, artistic development, and character. -- From publisher's description.
