Lot Essay

"Painters in the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance... were employed to educate the people... they could walk into a cathedral, look at the wall and see what was happening... I am not specifically trying to do that... but I am trying to show what's happening, what's going on in my own private way."
—B. Thompson, quoted in T. Golden, Bob Thompson, exh. cat., Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 1997, p. 61.
