Fish Series, No. 2

Charles Demuth American

Not on view

The colorful tropical fish in the waters around Bermuda are featured in a large series of whimsical watercolors, of which The Met owns five. Although they look imaginary, they accurately reproduce the markings and shapes of identifiable species. At other times, between 1915 and 1918, Demuth is reported to have frequented the New York Aquarium, then in Battery Park.
