STUART DAVIS: AMERICAN PAINTER. Lowery Stokes Sims et al. Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 1991. Distributed by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 334 pp. with 300 ills. (128 col.). 32 x 24 cm. LC 91-25901 ISBN 0810964058 In English.
A significant review and reappraisal of the work of major American painter Davis (1892-1964), this well-illustrated catalogue features seven essays which provide a decade- by-decade examination of the artist's career, from his early involvement with the Ashcan School and his experimentation with European Modernist styles to his integration of a Cubist mode of abstraction with the imagery of urban American culture, discussing his relationship to Abstract Expressionism, Pop art and Color Field painting and examining the prominence of words and ciphers in his work. Extensive scholarly commentaries on some 90 of the 175 exhibited paintings and drawings clarify Davis's often enigmatic themes and the stylistic progression of the works, which include portraits, landscapes and street scenes produced from 1909 to 1920, several Paris paintings of the late 20s and early 30s, and numerous examples of the distinctive collage-like abstractions that dominated the last decades of the artist's career.
