About

‘Venus & Shooting Stars Over the Mountain’ is an original mixed media artwork using watercolor and giclée print on canvas, signed by the artist in the lower right center. Alternating between wide arcing brush strokes and astral drops of color, the composition depicts the planet Venus and other celestial bodies illuminating the night sky. Tracing the movement of the cosmos, 'Venus & Shooting Stars Over the Mountain' is reminiscent of Joan Miro's 'Constellations' for its use of organic lines and shapes to indicate motion. Speaking about this piece, Barnett explained that he had been saving the final section of his roll of Fabriano watercolor paper (hence the furled corners that can be observed near the top of the canvas) to document something worthy of this occasion; ultimately it was the planet Venus passing above the mountains that served as the inspiration for this expansive and luminous piece. Mixed media watercolor & giclée print on canvas mounted on museum foamboard 25.5 x 35.5 inches, artwork 31.125 x 41 inches, frame Signed and dated in lower center Framed to conservation standards using archival materials including 100 percent rag matting. Housed in a modern profile white moulding with 3 inch linen liner. 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.
