Stuart Davis: In Full Swing | Whitney Museum of American Art

Whitney has an upcoming show for Stuart Davis starting June 10th.
http://whitney.org/Exhibitions/StuartDavis

"Stuart Davis (1892–1964) invented a vocabulary that harnessed the grammar of abstraction to the speed and simultaneity of modern America. By merging the bold, hard-edged style of advertising with the conventions of European avant-garde painting, he created an art endowed with the vitality and dynamic rhythms that he saw as uniquely modern and American."
