Stuart Davis Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, Illustrator, b. 1892 - d. 1964

(b Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1892; d New York, New York, 1964) American Artist. Stuart Davis’s father was the Art Director of Philadelphia Press, and his mother was a sculptor. He studied painting under Robert Henri from 1910 to 1913. Davis was one of the youngest artists to exhibit at in the Armory Show in 1913. In 1946-47 exhibitions, Advancing America Art, Davis’s work was purchased by U.S. State Department as a part of a significant exhibition introducing the most progressive American art to Europe and Latin America. The works Davis created in 1930s, after visiting Paris, were some of the artist’s most accomplished works. In Egg Beater series, he adopted the analytical style of cubism, integrating the imagery’s pictorial and fragmentation concerns to create a fragmented and reconstituted reality in the painting with relatively flat paint and geometric style. The use of brilliant colors reflected Davis’s interest in Jazz music, in which he intensifies the tempo, the sense of movement, the gaiety, and rhythmic beat through increasing complication of smaller, more irregular, and more contrasted color shapes. Davis’s paintings also often hinted the artist’s whimsical personality, where the real objects were, themselves, aesthetic objects that carried an inner logic of their own.

              Stuart Davis (1892–1964) was an American modernist painter known for his colorful, dynamic compositions that blended elements of Cubism, Fauvism, and American urban culture. Born in Philadelphia, Davis studied art in New York City and Europe before returning to the United States to pursue his artistic career.Davis was one of the first American artists to embrace the emerging trends of modernism in the early 20th century. His work was influenced by his interest in jazz music, urban landscapes, and popular culture, and he often depicted scenes of everyday life in vibrant, abstracted forms.One of Davis's most famous works is "Swing Landscape" (1938), which captures the rhythm and energy of the American landscape through bold colors and dynamic shapes. The painting exemplifies Davis's unique fusion of abstraction and representation, as well as his celebration of American culture and identity.In addition to his paintings, Davis was also known for his work as a muralist and public artist. He created several murals for the Works Progress Administration (WPA) during the Great Depression, as well as numerous public commissions throughout his career.Davis's work had a significant impact on the development of American art, influencing subsequent generations of artists and helping to establish modernism as a dominant force in American culture. His bold and innovative style continues to be admired for its vitality, originality, and visual impact, and his legacy as one of the great masters of American modernism endures to this day.

              Stuart Davis New York, (1892-1964) Ready to Wear lithograph Signed in the print lower right. Biography from the Archives of askART: Born in Philadelphia in 1892, Stuart Davis is known by many art historians as the American painter most influenced by Cubism. Art historian Norman Geske described Davis' career as a "near classical demonstration of the process by which American painting of the twentieth century came of age." (40). Davis moved from journalistic illustration to Social Realism, to Expressionism, to Cubism, ultimately becoming one of America's leading abstractionists. Strongly influenced by Fernand Leger and the New York Armory Show of 1912, he developed his own unique style of Cubism, which also incorporated Realism. Along with Max Weber, he is credited with being the importer of Cubism to the United States from France at a time when the public was more interested in Social Realism and American Scene painting with people and places that were recognizable. Through his painting, he pursued a life-long quest of finding a logical set of assumptions from which he could produce a modern picture, and the results were strong, related patterns and compelling color combinations. In addition to paintings, his body of work includes drawings, collages, lithographs, gouaches, and murals. Stuart Davis was born in Philadelphia to artistic parents. His mother was sculptor Helen Stuart Foulke, and his father, Edward Wyatt Davis, was art editor of the Philadelphia Press. Through his father, he had early association with John Sloan and Robert Henri, with whom he studied in New York City from 1910 to 1913. The Armory Show of 1912 dissuaded him from following the realist styles of Sloan and Henri, but he maintained his artistic focus on aspects of the social realism they espoused in that many of his subjects were places such as run-down hotels or apartment interiors. Davis experimented with Cubism, collage, and total abstraction, and eventually settled on a style based on Cubism with much improvisation. In the late 1920s, he lived in Paris in Jan Matulka's studio close to other modernists including Alexander Calder, Isamu Noguchi, and Morris Kantor. Then he returned to New York City, in whose vicinity he spent the remainder of his career. He had a New York City studio and also a studio in Hoboken, New Jersey. From that time, his paintings reflected American experience, especially his love of jazz music, with the modernist styles he employed beginning with the Armory Show of 1913. In the 1930s, he taught at the Art Students League in New York, and he also did murals for the WPA (Works Progress Administration). In the 1940s, he taught at the New School for Social Research. In 1964, he received the first commission by an American artist to design a postage stamp, which was issued six months after his death in that year. His first exhibition was in 1927 and venues included the Phillips Gallery in Washington DC , and the Whitney Museum in New York. In this exhibition, he introduced his landmark "Eggbeater Series", various depictions of an eggbeater, a fan and a glove, with each one increasingly abstract until only pure abstraction remained. A 1998 retrospective of his work was organized by curators of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, and its last venue was The National Museum of American Art in Washington D.C.

              Est: $100 - $150

              Stuart Davis, American, 1892 to 1964, Modernist gouache painting on board depicting a cityscape. Signed lower right. Framed. Stuart Davis is an American artist, known for Abstraction, mod real imagery. He was born in Philadelphia in 1892, Stuart Davis is known by many art historians as the American painter most influenced by Cubism. Art historian Norman Geske described Davis career as a near classical demonstration of the process by which American painting of the twentieth century came of age. Davis moved from journalistic illustration to Social Realism, to Expressionism, to Cubism, ultimately becoming one of Americas leading abstractionists. Strongly influenced by Fernand Leger and the New York Armory Show of 1912, he developed his own unique style of Cubism, which also incorporated Realism. Along with Max Weber, he is credited with being the importer of Cubism to the United States from France at a time when the public was more interested in Social Realism and American Scene painting with people and places that were recognizable. One of a kind artwork.

(Presumably acquired directly from the above sale). Zabriskie Gallery, New York, New York. Hirschl & Adler Galleries, New York, New York. Acquired directly from the above. Collection of Charles and Virginia Bowden, San Antonio, Texas. Literature Playboy Magazine, no. 1, 1919, p. 27 (illustrated). Ani Boyajian, Mark Rutkoski, Stuart Davis: A Catalogue Raisonné, New Haven, 2007, p. 463, no. 966 (illustrated). In overall good condition. The sheet is affixed to the undermat via two pieces of paper tape at upper left and upper right corners. With very light mat staining around the image. The toned sheet is very light and fragile. Some of the outer edges appear brittle, wrinkly and we can spot some minuscule repaired paper cuts at times, especially along the top outer edge of the sheet, once the mat is lifted. The edges are uneven, some with minuscule paper chips and associated paint loss. Repaired corner at upper left, and missing paper at upper right corner (about 0 1/2 x 0 1/2 in.). We notice a narrow strip running along the top outer edge of the sheet (about 0 1/2 in. from the top edge), which seems to indicate a repair all the way through, which appears confirmed by the verso of the work. The verso is equally toned and presents signs of surface soiling, some due to the actual watercolor pigments used on the front and which are see through. Based on the discoloration verso, there appear to have been a repair (sliver-like) in the bottom right corner. See Specialist's pictures for more details. Frame: 26 x 31 x 1 1/2 in.
