Rabo Karabekian

Rabo Karabekian is a fictional character and the narrator and protagonist of Bluebeard, 1988, by American author Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

He is an Abstract Expressionist loosely modeled on Barnett Newman, and also appeared in Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions as the artist of the $50,000 painting The Last Temptation of Saint Anthony. He was met with resentment by people in the book who felt that the purchase of his painting was a waste of money.
