Baziotes, William (băzēōˈtēz) [key], 1912–64, American painter, b. Pittsburgh. Baziotes's works of the 1940s and 50s are largely abstract images, usually with brooding, primitive qualities encompassed in rich and muted colors.

Representative works are Dragon (Metropolitan Mus.) and The Dwarf and Pompeii (both: Mus. of Modern Art, New York City).
