#24 Joseph Rodefer De Camp – The Red Kimono

Jul

05

 

Joseph Rodefer De Camp (American, 1858 – 1923), The Red Kimono, c.1919, oil on canvas, 53 ¾ x 46 ¼ in., Museum Purchase, AP.1975.2.1.

In The Red Kimono, a beautiful woman is surrounded by beautiful things as model “Reddy” Pierson watches over a tiny bird perched on the edge of a shallow glass dish of water.  Evident in the work is DeCamp’s interest in the Orient, which becomes a dominant theme in his last works.  This painting was featured in 12 major exhibitions between the time of its creation until DeCamp’s death in 1923.

“Striking red and detailed silk against dreary day outside draws your focus to her pensive thoughts.” – anonymous
