Red Witch

  • Gene Davis, Red Witch, 1966, acrylic, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Bequest of Florence Coulson Davis, 2005.19.1

Exhibition Label
Davis relished grand-scale, complex works that fill one's field of vision. At the Corcoran Gallery of Art, he encircled viewers by striping the rotunda twice (in 1975 and 1982). In Philadelphia and Lewistown, NY, he painted streets in colorful stripes; in the second instance he turned a park into the world's largest painting.
