Stuart Davis: In Full Swing

Exhibition organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

Stuart Davis (1892–1964) was an American.

The exhibition is unusual in its focus on Davis’s mature career and on his working method of using preexisting motifs as springboards for new compositions. From 1939 on, Davis rarely painted a work that did not make reference, however hidden, to one or more of his earlier compositions. Such “appropriation” is a distinctive aspect of his mature art.
