Precisionism emphasized the clean lines, sharp angles, and geometric forms of modern indtrial and urban environments.4. **Indtrial Subjects**: Many of Sheeler's works depict indtrial and mechanized subjects, such as factories, machinery, and skyscrapers. His paintings often exude a sense of order and balance, even in the midst of urban chaos.5. **Influence of Cubism**: Sheeler's work was influenced by European modernist movements like Cubism. He adopted some of the geometric and abstract principles of Cubism while maintaining a unique American perspective.6. **Famo Works**: One of his most famo paintings is "Precisionist still-life" (1930), which features a collection of everyday objects arranged with precision and clarity.
