      Four Houses — an oil-on-canvas painting (descriptive plaque) — spans an entire wall. Concentric dots precisely aligned create geometric shapes that capture the houses, skylines, and clouds. The pastel and brown color palates offer contrast, and in subtle detail, Bartlett was able to capture shadows in the use of varied shading within the dots. The collection of the small dots put together creates big things in Four Houses.
      Located in the main lobby of the Gonda Building, Rochester, Minnesota Campus, Four Houses was donated by Dr William and Rebecca Benson in honor of Dr John C. Ivins.
