About the Artwork

Most of Demuth's watercolors from this time record the gay nightclubs, cafés, and bathhouses he frequented in Greenwich Village. Here he captured the ambience of nightlife in New York City through vaudeville performers like the acrobats pictured here. The central figure balances a box of flowers that cascades down and highlights his sensually muscular legs. The ambiguous yellow orb may be a stage light.
