The Archives Department celebrates the life of artist Will Barnet with this WNYC interview from 1972, precisely 40 years ago today. Last year, at the age of 100, Barnet had a widely acclaimed retrospective at the National Academy. The show highlighted a long and prolific career for an artist whose worked spanned - and survived - every important artistic movement in the 20th century. Barnet passed away yesterday.
