It’s been four years since we last had this great piece by Demuth…
Charles Demuth: I Saw the Figure 5 in Gold, 1928 - oil on canvas (The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC)
Inspired by:
The Great Figure (William Carlos Williams)
Among the rain  and lights  I saw the figure 5  in gold  on a red  firetruck  moving  tense  unheeded  to gong clangs  siren howls  and wheels rumbling  through the dark city

Charles Demuth: I Saw the Figure 5 in Gold, 1928 - oil on canvas (The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC)

Inspired by:

The Great Figure (William Carlos Williams)

Among the rain
and lights
I saw the figure 5 
in gold
on a red
firetruck
moving
tense
unheeded
to gong clangs
siren howls
and wheels rumbling
through the dark city

    I’ve always loved this painting, yet had no idea it was linked to this poem. I love it even more now.
