In 1936, the Works Progress Administration's Federal Art Project commissioned Stuart Davis (1892-1964) to paint a mural for the Williamsburg Houses, a New York City housing project. Though the mural, Swing Landscape, was never installed in its intended location, it survives as an impressive testament to Davis's energetic, colorful brand of abstraction and the progressive politics that animated it. With color reproductions, vintage photographs, and insightful text, this exhibition catalogue explores the painting, arguably Davis's most ambitious work.
