Bill Rice Art

BILL RICE (USA, 1931–2006)

William Rice, known as Bill Rice was a painter, film actor and an unaffiliated scholar. He was born in Vermont and graduated from Middlebury College. Bill Rice is considered by such luminaries as Rene Ricard to be one of the most important painters of urban life from his generation. Rice’s depictions of inner-city gay men are some of the most hauntingly beautiful images of anonymous sexual encounters during the epidemic. For gay men of his generation, the very act of sex was a political statement. Rice died in Manhattan of lung cancer on January 23, 2006.
