William Bailey Works Biography

WILLIAM BAILEY

William H. Bailey was a contemporary American painter known for his still lifes, landscapes, and figurative works. Emitting a quiet intensity, and appearing to be painted from observation, his works are composed from memory and sketches. Born on November 17, 1930, in Council Bluffs, IA, he studied at the University of Kansas, going on to receive his MFA under the Modernist painter Josef Albers at Yale University. Honored as a Professor Emeritus of Art at Yale University, Bailey’s work is represented in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., and the Art Institute of Chicago.
