About Artist: Bartlett was born March 14, 1941 in Long Beach, California. She grew up in the suburbs of Long Beach before she attended Mills College in Oakland, California. While a student, she formed a friendship with the future mixed-media sculptor Elizabeth Murray. Bartlett received her BA in 1963. She then traveled to New Haven to study at Yale School of Art and Architecture at a time when minimalism was the dominant style. Bartlett's instructors included the artists James Rosenquist, Jim Dine, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, Alex Katz, and Al Held. She received her BFA in 1964 and her MFA in 1965.Bartlett has described the experience of study there as her broadest influence: "I'd walked into my life." Fellow Yale Art and Architecture alumni of the 1960s include the painters, photographers, and sculptors Brice Marden, Richard Serra, Chuck Close, Nancy Graves, Gary Hudson and Robert Mangold. When asked by Murray in a 2005 interview about what she was thinking as a first-year art student, Bartlett replied: Being an artist, Ed Bartlett, Bach cello suites, Cézanne, getting into graduate school, getting to New York, Albert Camus, James Joyce. I’d drawn constantly since childhood: large drawings of every creature alive in the ocean; Spanish missions with Indians camping in the foreground, in the background Spanish men throwing cowhides over a cliff to a waiting ship; hundreds of Cinderellas on five-by-eight pads, all alike but with varying hair color and dresses.
