Francis McCarthy, Untitled (Vase)
Credit LineGift of Margery P. Lee, 2018
Dimensions13 x 13 1/2 x 13 1/2 in.
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. The large female figures swimming through a deep blue ocean are reminiscent of the figures in Henri Matisse’s great mural there, The Dance.
