About this title


Using colors as hot as the jazz he loved, Stuart Davis created some of the boldest abstractions of this century. This volume captures the full range of his remarkable career, from the Armory Show of 1913 to his last brilliant works of the 1960s. 13.5x11.5", 248 pp, color illustrations.

From Publishers Weekly:

Even when he was hailed as "the ace of American modernists," Davis was odd man out. His distinctive brand of homegrown Cubism, with its clashing shapes and razzle-dazzle colors, had few imitators. Though he was active in leftist politics in the 1930s, his work from that period seems curiously detached. In later years he turned inward, out of touch with a new generation of abstract artists. Nevertheless, his best pictures have undeniable staying power born of their sheer inventiveness, jazzy syncopations and street-smart imagery. Wilkin, who has written books on David Smith and Helen Frankenthaler, examines the phases of Davis's career, from the gritty realism of his Ashcan pictures to serene New Mexico landscapes, cubist "Tobacco Paintings" and murals. This profusely illustrated biographical study should add luster to the reputation of an artist whose work has stood the test of time.
