Waylande Gregory, Plate, 1958, ceramic, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Ivy Borow Reade, 1993.62.1
Waylande Gregory began to produce small porcelain figures, plates, and candlesticks in 1935 in order to support his family. He produced more than a thousand of these small-scale works in his lifetime. Although the three figures in Gregory’s Plate are abstracted, the gender of each is still recognizable. The central figure is a thick-hipped woman and beneath her are two men who appear to be vying for her attention.
