Painting by R.H. Ives Gammell: Study for Panel VI, The Hound of Heaven Series, represented by Childs Gallery

R.H. Ives Gammell

American (1893-1981)

Study for Panel VI, The Hound of Heaven Series
Oil on canvas

Gammell Trust #T186.

This is the study for panel VI of the Hound of Heaven sequence and deals with man’s attempt to hide from God and/or reality by becoming involved with endless games, sport and the symbols of pleasure. The operative passage of Thompson’s poem is as follows: “I fled Him down the labyrinthine ways of my my own mind / and in the midst of tears I hid from him and under running laughter.”

Exhibited: “The Undraped Figure”, St. Botolph Club, Boston, MA, January – February 2004.
