Known for painted tiles, ceramic-topped tables, and glazed vessels, McCarthy covered the surfaces of his objects with nude figures. In this, he was inspired by the Barnes Foundation’s collection where he studied and later taught. His lounging bathers might be inspired by Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s depiction of nude bathers, many of which are also found in the collection the Barnes Foundation.
