"Charred Home and Old Sow with Her Litter" by Philip Evergood, (Amer., 1901-1989)
Regular price $3,250
Mixed Media Drawing, with Ink, Watercolor, and Charcoal, 1963, 24-5/8 x 19-1/4, signed and dated in ink lower right, on a full sheet of warm white Arches laid paper. Evergood's perennial wit and grit are no where in greater evidence than in this masterful, large, raucous, earthy, and true to life work from his later years in rural Southbury, CT. This significant drawing is reproduced full page as plate 108 in "The Graphic Work of Philip Evergood", by Lucy R. Lippard, 1966. While I did not personally get to meet Mr. Evergood, I lived for several years within an easy walk of his humble home, and can attest that ramschackle scenes such as this are still in character with the neighborhood to this day.
