Stuart Davis (American, 1892-1964)Attributed: Champion, oil on illustration board, signed lower right, framed.
One of America's first modern artists and a forefather of Pop art, Stuart Davis began his artistic career with the Ashcan School before embracing European modernism following the Armory Show. The artist's abstract paintings, infused with jazz rhythm and bold, colorful abstractions of New York's urban landscape or household objects, offer a taste of European Cubism with an American twist. Whether painting in the style of realism or Post-cubist abstraction, Davis's determination to convey something of American political and consumer culture was unwavering.
11 x 15.5" illustration board/ 12 x 16.5" framed.
