About

David Barnett's "Homage to Schomer Lichtner: The Merrymakers" is an original mixed media artwork, signed by the artist in the lower left. The artwork itself becomes a collaboration between Barnett and Schomer Lichtner given Barnett's appropriation and reinterpretation of Lichtner's original screenprint. The scene itself is a magical winter wonderland, with forest creatures abound among the snow-covered trees. Overall, this is a colorful and playful work that bridges past and present. Acrylic, iridescent watercolor, & ink on watercolor paper 6 x 8.5 inches, artwork 10.63 x 12.75 inches, frame Signed by David Barnett, lower left Signature of Schomer Lichtner in the image, lower right Framed to conservation standards using archival materials including 100 percent rag matting and Museum Glass to protect from UV rays. Float-mounted in a white-wash finish modern profile wood shadow box moulding. David Barnett, an artist, collector, appraiser and gallerist has been passionate about art from the early age of five. David’s career as an art dealer began at age nineteen when, as a fine arts student, he sponsored an exhibition of work by fellow student artists. In 1966, he opened his first gallery in a converted basement apartment at Wisconsin Avenue and 21st Street. In 1985 David moved his gallery from Wisconsin Avenue into the Old Button Mansion on State Street and has been active ever since. David’s talents for recognizing undervalued artists and for meeting the needs of art lovers, art collectors and artists have created a vibrant, flourishing gallery and collection of over 6,000 works of art. David was born and raised in Wisconsin. He has been painting in watercolors, acrylics, oil pastels as well as fine art photography. David has more than 10 different series he has developed over the years. They include Abstract, Surrealism, Morph Dog, Up North Birch Bark, Impressions of Mexico City, Southwest, Fireworks, Famous Artist Paying Homage and Garden Panorama. Influential artists include Vermeer, Miro, Kandinsky, Chagall, Nolde and Klee. David has been featured in many magazines, newspapers and public television programs regarding his beautiful gallery, collection and knowledge and passion of fine art. David also has work in the permanent collection Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Arizona. Since its opening in 1966, The David Barnett Gallery has flourished to become Wisconsin's premier gallery and has the most diverse range of art available in any Wisconsin gallery, including works of art that represent more than 600 artists. The gallery also offers custom framing, art appraisals, installation services, consulting services and more. David Barnett has been appraising art as an accredited member of the Appraisers Association of America since 1975 and he is one of approximately only 2,000 personal property appraisers in the United States with the Uniformed Standards of Professional Appraiser Practice Certification. The David Barnett Gallery specializes in European and American masters, regional and nationally recognized artists, and "emerging" Wisconsin artists. Latin American, Asian, and African American artists also adorn the gallery along with Ethnographic art from Africa, Indonesia, and Oceania. The gallery has a national reputation for its extensive collection of Picasso ceramics and Milton Avery oil paintings.
