| Artist's Notes
About An English Painting (Constable), 1963.
This is a composition filled with brushstrokes that happen to look like clouds. The image continues to be a calligraphic image, something I often made explicit with such titles as The Calligraphy of Henry Raeburn, 1963. From making a painting of handwriting I came to make a painting of a painting. (George Deem, letter to Franklin Sirmans, The Menil Collection, Houston, January 2, 2008)
