Should anyone be interested further in Demuth and his life long friend Marsden Harley I can recommend "Speaking for Vice" by Jonathan Weinbug, (Yale University Press 1993) for a non-sensational appraisal of their art.

I know my dear but this was a serious publication far above the sleezy rubbish I usually purchase about one of the very best watercolourists..
(PS I put a photo in Men in Art by mistake will you be an angel and remove it for me ?)

Charles Demuth was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania but studied at Philadelphia's Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art. He traveled to Europe where he befriended the most famous artists of the early 20th Century. For a short while he lived in New York City and loved to hang out at some of the Turkish Baths in that city. He returned to his home in Lancaster where he died due to complications of diabetes. His small 18th Century town house in downtown Lancaster is now a museum that is open to the public free of charge.

A very interesting effect with limited colour. I must search out some more work by him. As always, Mr Philly Guy, you are a mine of information. Thank you
