Morton B. is famous now

I wish I could have seen this Morton Bartlett exhibit last summer at Julie Saul Gallery. I blogged about him earlier. LINK
Here's a NYTimes article about that show. I LOVE M.B.
Marion Harris has a cool new website. She wrote about his art and preserved it for the rest of us.
P.S. "Vote for me" if you like this post

Wow. I mean, Wow! I can't believe I hadn't heard of Morton Bartlett but now that I do I'm fascinated. Thank you so much for posting this. What a strange person he must have been. I was interested that the NY Times wrote about him as an serious artist with a vision, not just as a wierdo creating a family of "dolls." My hunch is that he was both. Not because he made a family of mannequins, which doesn't really seen so odd to me, but because he did so in isolation.

The Julie Saul Gallery also represents Maira Kalman, a personal favorite of mine, so double kudos to them.
