Davis, Stuart - National Gallery of Art Washington

Stuart Davis: In Full Swing

As one of the most important American modernists, 

blurred distinctions between text and image, high and low art, and abstraction and figuration, crafting a distinct style that continues to influence art being made today. Carefully selected from the full range of Davis's career, some 100 of his most important, visually complex, jazz-inspired compositions will be on view. Davis rarely painted a work that did not make careful reference (however hidden) to one or more of his earlier compositions. This exhibition (20.11.2016 - 05.03.2017) offers a new exploration of his working method. (Text: National Gallery of Art Washington)
