Experience the Abstract Work of Stuart Davis at this Amazing Exhibit

Experience the eclectic career of renowned artist Stuart Davis with the special showcase exhibit at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art! This one-of-a-kind display captures the unique style of a groundbreaking creator that the New York Times described as “…a universe of jazzy patterns and blazing colors.”

Prolifically working from the early 1900s into the ‘60s, Davis is a leading figure in American modern art. Through his bold colors and dynamic forms, he merged the visuals of advertising with the rhythms of jazz, and this major exhibition invites guests to explore the three major phases of Davis’s work: from 1927 to 1937, during which he applied the forms of Cubism to still lifes and landscapes; 1938 to 1943, when his work increased in both size and abstraction; and from 1944 to his death in 1964, during which Davis invented a new abstract art language all his own.

Merging the aesthetics of advertising with the rhythms of jazz and distinctly American-inspired subject matter, Davis’s unique style is sometimes referred to as the pre-cursor to Pop art. His singular aesthetic of Modernism mixed with American imagery continues to influence art being made today. Don’t miss this special exhibition of colorful artworks that virtually hum with energy!
