Amos Ferguson's "Woman Reclining on Sofa"
history of the reclining nude in art history is ripe territory for
investigations and responses from artists the world over, so it is no
surprise that our beloved intuitive artist Amos Ferguson, and his
positioning makes things all the more interesting - particular because
this lady isn’t nude at all! One of his earlier works in the D’Aguilar
Art Foundation Collection, Ferguson was inspired to paint the reclined
lady, with her decadent gown and pearls, because of imagery he saw
during his time painting homes in Lyford Cay.
