Editorial Reviews Review

The editor of this startling book claims that Stuart Davis made the "first truly original American avant-garde painting." Niggling arguments aside, it finally gives Davis his due, which has always been difficult. His most familiar paintings are so flatly poster-like that they prefigure many similarly cool movements, from conceptual to pop art, but without the intellectual or humorous trappings of the latter. The early works reproduced here show a sensitive side of Davis. In a 1912 self-portrait, for example, the artist looks troubled and tubercular, glancing over his shoulder at a distant female figure. The colors are wintry, the paint thickly applied. Later, when Davis discovers modernism, it is as if he embraces the logic of abstraction as an antidote to the deeper emotions of his youth. This comprehensive volume gives readers enough information to decide for themselves. --Margaret Moorman --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
Right off the bat you should know I keep buying this book because I keep giving my current copy away to people I love. This book brilliantly presents superlative examples of why Stuart Davis is seen by artists & art historians alike as one of the greatest American painters of the 20th Century. A thousand imitators have followed after Davis, trying to match his genius for both capturing and yet leading the American cultural zeitgeist. No one can match him: Davis is the master. Buy this book and see why. Better yet, buy multiples of this book: you will want THAT much to give your favorite people a treasure of a book from one of the few true diamonds amongst 20th century American artists, Stuart Davis. And have fun reveling.
