In Paris in 1913 expatriot Morgan Russell, along with Stanton MacDonald-Wright, formed the first organized American art movement: Synchromism. Complete with a program, a formulated aesthetic and a manifesto, Synchromism advocated the concept of creating form and space in painting through the application of color theory. Influenced structurally by Cubism and related to the color experiments of French Orphism, Synchromism was not an altogether new idea, but the work itself was pioneering. Although short-lived, Synchromism had a lasting impact on American abstract art in terms of diffusing modern scientific color theory in America.
