Animal Head

Richard Pousette-Dart

Animal Head

Richard Pousette-Dart
  • Date: c.1938
  • Style: Abstract Art
  • Genre: abstract

This work, an abstracted study of an animal head, shows Pousette-Dart's interest in tribal and Jungian themes of confrontation and sacrifice. These themes are the main focus of his work in the 1930s and early 40s. The oval shape is repeated and modified to suggest eye, horn, egg, yolk, and fetus, all surrounded by his characteristic black contour line.
