WR Watkins’ blue period

The 1930’s suffered the Great Depression, so it seems only natural that WR Watkins would favor a sparse washed-out palette during that decade. Or he may have simply enjoyed playing off the cool blues against his models’ red hair. Either way, these ghostly nudes balance looseness and precision, producing a sketchier feel than much of his later work.
