Charles Sheeler does not have an image.
(Philadelphia, PA, 1883 - 1965, Dobbs Ferry, New York)
Worked Philadelphia (frequent trips to Europe), 1903-1918; New York, 1919-1926; New York-South Salem, New York, 1926-1932; Ridgefield, Connecticut, 1932-1942; Irvington-on-Hudson, New York, 1942-1965.
Sheeler studied under William Merritt Chase at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, but like so many American artists, his career was dramatically changed by the Armory Show of 1913. Sheeler was the primary creator of Precisionism, a distinctly American hybrid of modern painting that married French Cubism’s system of planes and flattened perspective with a photographic-like painting style.
