Richard Bosman

Richard Bosman (b. 1944) was born in Madras, India and raised in Egypt and Australia. He was educated in England and later moved to New York. Richard Bosman’s work is cinematic, dramatic, and expressive. In a manner akin to single-frame or stop-action techniques borrowed from film or comic strips, he captures moments of suspense and possible catastrophe. His work is narrative, presenting arresting images that feel sinister and yet often display no clear reason to be disturbed. A major figure in what has been referred to as American Figurative Expressionism, Richard Bosman’s paintings and prints are included in collections of museums throughout the world including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Australian National Gallery, the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Detroit Institute of Art, the Library of Congress in Washington D.C., the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the New York Public Library, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Bibliothèque nationale de France, the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City, and more.
