The Letter B, 1982
From The Ultimate Alphabet
Acrylic on canvas, 76 x 102 cm (30 x 40 in.)
A boisterous beauty besprinkled with 542 representations of the letter B from artist Mike Wilks’s brush, this painting is the second from his best-selling book The Ultimate Alphabet (released by Pomegranate in 2015 as The Ultimate Alphabet: Complete Edition). Wilks writes, “Wander through this picture and attempt to find a big building built from lots of Bs, a balustrade, a boomerang, a booth complete with a buxom barmaid, various buttons, badges, braids, bows, and beads, a blond baby with a baffling blemish on its bib, an ecclesiastical gentleman having as much trouble seeing as the one immediately behind him, and beds of more than one variety.”
