Paintings of Walter Tandy Murch

Larry Groff's must read post about the painter Walter Tandy Murch, (1907–1967) "an important still life painter who until recently it has been very difficult to find information or see many images of his work."

In addition to many scanned images of Murch's paintings Groff also links to an illuminating essay about Murch's work by Winslow Myers titled The Recreated Image, Walter Tandy Murch at Sixty where Myers writes: "For the sake of this potential interest [Murch] would leave the future surfaces of drawings and paintings on the floor of his studio or under his easel, where dirt or random paint splatters could eventuate in something he could continue. This radical openness to anything that might give his work more life allowed him not only to incorporate accidents of thrown paint, but to include or even develop half-hidden images that seemed to well up from his unconscious."
