Throughout the first half of the twentieth century, American painters and sculptors adopted many different styles of working that diverged dramatically from realistic to abstract, yet their choice of subject matter often remained rooted in landscape, cityscapes, and the human figure.
In this gallery, competing approaches can be seen in the hard-edged precisionist paintings of industrial America and in Stuart Davis’s jazz-inspired abstractions.
