About

Barton, John Murray. MY BELOVED. Color Woodcut, 1958. Edition of 125. Titled, numbered 1/125, signed and dated in pencil. 23 5/8 x 7 3/4 inches (image), 11 1/2 x 27 inches (sheet). In excellent condition. John Murray Barton was born in New York, NY, on February 8, 1921. He studied at the Art Students League under George Bridgman, and at the Nahum Tschacbasov School of Art, also in New York. Barton regularly incorporated sand, concrete and other materials into his oil painting and murals, and occasionally his prints, creating both a visual and tactile experience in his work. Some of his numerous commissions included murals at the New York Board of Education, and a "History of Money" mural at the South Carolina State Bank. He frequently collaborated with other artists, and also had many one-man shows at Fantasy Gallery in Washington, DC and Hudson Gallery in New York. He has been a lecturer on technique and creative expression at many universities throughout the East Coast until his death in 2000. Today his work can be found in various important institutions, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, the New York Public Library, the Haifa Museum of Modern Art in Israel, the Brooklyn Museum, the Fort Worth Art Center, the Oakland Museum, the Yale University Museum, and many other collections around the globe both public and private.
