Cornelius McCarthy | The Blue Robe
gouache, 67 x 51,5 cm, 1988

Many of the works of Cornelius McCarthy are a combination of two-dimensional coloured fields. But by the proper use of light and dark, in both the foreground and background, Cornelius McCarthy creates the third dimension in a masterful way. That is one of the distinctive stylistic features of his work.

The biography “Radiant Affinities” written by Peter Dobson is a wonderfull book about his life and his work.
