Henry at a Table

29 x 42
UAMA Collection: Museum Purchase with Funds Provided By the Edward J. Gallagher, Jr. Memorial Fund
Theme: Waiting

In March, 2020, millions of us across the United States were asked to remain home, stay indoors, and avoid contact with those outside our immediate home. While this lithograph was created by the artist in 1976, this work could have been made in the year 2020. “Henry”, sits alone at the table, with just a house plant for company. With elbows on the table, hands folded, Henry seems to be waiting… for things to return to normal?
