In a statement made by the National Endowment for the Arts, upon being awarded the National Medal for the Arts, the NEA noted his unique way of combining abstraction with domestic life. “His nuanced and graceful depictions of family and personal scenes, for which he is best known, are meticulously constructed of flat planes that reveal a lifelong exploration of abstraction, expressionism and geometry,” read the NEA’s statement. “For over 80 years, Mr. Barnet has been a constant force in the visual arts world, marrying sophistication and emotion with beauty and form.”
