"Stuart Davis: Prints and Drawings"
2002-09-07 until 2003-03-09
Amon Carter Museum
Fort Worth, TX,
Drawn from the Carterís holdings of works on paper by Stuart Davis (1892Ė1964), this exhibition traces the artistís repetition of sophisticated imagery throughout his long career. The exhibition features the museumís complete set of Davisí 26 prints, consisting of lithographs and screenprints, as well as 20 drawings, which served as source imagery for both his prints and oils.
Included are the lithographs Davis produced in Paris in 1928Ė1929; his innovative series of four lithographs from 1931, which are among the most highly regarded prints of the first half of the twentieth-century; and his experimentation with color printmaking, beginning in 1939. The exhibition shows how Davis created complex images by continually revisiting his own work, expanding and repeating subject matter focused on Paris, New York, and Gloucester, Massachusetts. The exhibition complements the Carterís holdings of six major oil paintings by Davis.
