Stuart Davis

Stuart Davis

Stuart Davis was 16 when his family moved to New Jersey where he studied art in New York City. There he became inspired by the excitement of the city; the tall skyscrapers, bright colors, storefront windows, and electric signs, began to motivate him to paint pictures using bright colors. When he was older Stuart Davis visited Paris, France. There he became inspired by an art movement called Cubism, a style of painting that shows objects as basic geometric shapes like cubes and circles. Stuart’s cityscapes, as pictured here, show a lot of details like fire escapes, shop signs, lampposts, and windows adding interesting patterns to his work. Stuart Davis died in 1964 at the age of 72.
