Dellard Cassity Jr. 1980s Painting and Collage of an Abstract Figure
A painting and collage on board by the American artist Dellard Cassity Jr. (1926-2008). Painted during the 1980s, this stark and hard-edged composition depicts a figure with a carrot-shaped face and black hair wearing a red outfit. The figure sits next to a green plant. Signed to the lower right, the colorful parts of the piece are made up of a collage while the background is painted white. The piece is displayed in a black metal frame.
Born in Illinois, Cassity studied art at Washington University in St. Louis. While his early works were typified by nostalgic and colorful scenes, his work starting in the 1960s was defined by hard-edged abstraction and optical art. His pieces depicting figures in red outfits were painted in the 1980s.
