Description

As the title, The Liver is the Cock’s Comb, may suggest there are several phallic shapes primarily in the center.  In 1941, Gorky married his second wife Agnes Magruder (American, 1921–2013), whose parents owned a farm in Virginia. This pastoral setting inspired the creation of “The Liver Is the Cock’s Comb,” which reflects both the artist’s physical surroundings as well as his memories of the gardens of his homeland.
