In his mature work, Stuart Davis (1892-1964) adapted European modernism to reflect the sights, sounds, and rhythms of American popular culture. Focusing on the jazzy images and motifs that became hallmarks of his career, this book features approximately 100 works—from his paintings of tobacco packages of the early 1920s, the abstract Egg Beater series, and the WPA murals of the 1930s, to the majestic works of his last two decades. Discussing the formative years and breakthroughs of this trailblazer, this is also a biography of an artist whose works hum with intelligence and energy.
