John Baker
"Old Madman #2", acrylic painting, portrait, collage, pinks, browns, black, tan

2019

$1,400

About

John Baker’s “Old Madman #2” is an imaginary portrait 20 x 16 x 1.5 inches in pinks, browns, blacks and tans. As Yeats wrote: “And when they know what old books tell/And that no better can be had/Know why an old man should be mad”. The sides are unpainted and the painting is signed and dated on the reverse. John Baker is a widely exhibited painter based in Boston and New York whose solo exhibitions have been favorably reviewed in the Boston Globe (his paintings demonstrate that the human figure as a source of fresh ideas still endures), Art New England (Baker’s collages raise a bunch of interesting issues) and American Art Collector (John Baker’s wonderful and worthy project). A native of New York City, Baker was a pupil of Donald Judd for two years. The sculptor’s constructivist method remains an influence on Baker’s collage process, but Baker’s artistic results are more sensual and emotional as he adds the elements of subtle color harmony and reliance on impulse. Baker is represented by Fountain Street Gallery in Boston, MA.
