Richard Bosman

Richard Bosman (b. 1944, Madras, India) is a narrative painter and printmaker of cinematic, dramatic, and expressive imagery. In a manner akin to single-frame or stop-action techniques borrowed from film or comic strips, his work captures moments of suspense and possible catastrophe. After being raised in Egypt and Australia, Bosman studied at the Byam Shaw School of Painting and Drawing in London, Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and The New York Studio School. A major figure in what has been referred to as American Figurative Expressionism, Bosman received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1994. His paintings and prints are included in museum collections throughout the world, including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Australian National Gallery, Baltimore Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, Detroit Institute of Art, Library of Congress, Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, Museum of Modern Art in New York, New York Public Library, Whitney Museum of American Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Museo Tamayo in Mexico City, and more. Bosman currently lives and works in Esopus, New York.
