Barbara Rossi (artist)
Barbara Rossi (born 1940) is a Chicago-based artist, one of the indigenous Chicago Imagists, a group that in the 1960s and 1970s turned to representational art. She first exhibited in the reveal of them at the Hyde Park Art Center in 1969. She is known for meticulously rendered drawings and cartoonish paintings, as skillfully as a personal vernacular. She works primarily by making reverse paintings on plexiglass that reference lowbrow and outsider art.
She is a school at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her works are exhibited in several long-lasting art museum collections.
