Contemporary Culture from the Bottom Up

Midweek Culture Fix: Tree and Urn (1921) by Stuart Davis

Stuart Davis is one of the early modernist painters in America, best known for his pop-art aesthetic in the 1930s and 1940s (predating Warhol) and the way that Jazz music influences his visual choices. He was also a member of the Ashcan school, a collection of artists who depicted scenes of daily New York City life, especially in poor neighborhoods.
