Will Barnet's artistic career as a painter and printmaker spanned nearly eight decades of continuous creativity. Few artists, other than perhaps Picasso or Monet, can claim such an extended period of uninterrupted and innovative art making. From the darkness of the Great Depression to the opening decade of the twenty-first century, his oeuvre reflects his unique interpretation of the art world's evolving genres: Social Realism, Modernism, Abstract Expressionism, and ulti­mately representational Minimalism with the human figure as his primary subject.

In addition to his acclaimed body of work, he influenced a broad spectrum of artists such as Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, James Rosenquist, Cy Twombly, and Ethel Fisher. Barnet's works can be found in nearly every major public collection in the United States, and he was awarded the National Medal of Arts in 2011.
