Builders

Cecil F. Head (American, 1906-1995)


Cecil Head derived his subject matters from views of downtown Indianapolis.

Builders presents bricklayers and masons constructing an apartment building at Tenth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue.

The complex color harmonies combined with strong contrasts are typical of the artist’s sense of color.
