No.62: Red Cabbage. His dalliance with French Classicism at an end, he turned his sculptural attentions to the absorbing world of Chinoiserie, carving a huge Napa Cabbage from plaster and painting it in a brick-red hue that evoked--so he hoped--the reds of Chinese lacquerwork. Despite its colour, the piece reminded him of Hokusai's Great Wave.
