|Description: In 1931, after a summer class with Hans Hofmann at the University of California at Berkeley, Bowden determined to pursue painting seriously. He made his way to New York working as a petty officer on a merchant ship. By 1934, he was again studying with Hofmann. The following year he became one of Hofmann's assistants and was friendly with George McNeil, Albert Swinden, Wilfrid Zogbaum, Ad Reinhardt, and Willem de Kooning. In 1937 and 1938, he painted two murals for the Williamsburg Housing Project. This painting, done in 1940-41 is quite similar to his "Untitled:Nude" from 1936-37 which was given to The Smithsonian American Art Museum as a gift from Patricia and Phillip Frost.|
