Description

STUART DAVIS - ELSE 1956
FLEET GALLERY
'ELSE' was purchased from the estate of Sepi Oinola in Helsinki Finland in 2012. Sepi was employed as an advisor to the Finnish Government and travelled throughout the world particularly to and from New York where he bought several paintings from Stuart Davis. Still in its original Finish frame.
This wonderful gouache painting is attributed to Stuart Davis (December 7, 1892 June 24, 1964). Davis was an early American modernist painter. He was well known for his jazz-influenced, proto-pop art paintings of the 1940s and 1950s, bold, brash, and colorful, as well as his Ashcan School pictures in the early years of the 20th century. With the belief that his work could influence the sociopolitical environment of America, Davis' political message was apparent in all of his pieces from the most abstract to the clearest. Contrary to most modernist artists, Davis was aware of his political objectives and allegiances and did not waver in loyalty via artwork during the course of his career.
