Stuart Davis: Path to Abstraction
June 9th - August 19th 2016
Hirschl & Adler Galleries is pleased to present Stuart Davis: Path to Abstraction, opening Thursday, June 9, 2016. The exhibition offers a rare view of Davis’s earlier foundational works including selections from his tough, gritty Hoboken series and examples from his seminal trip to Havana, Cuba, in 1920, alongside his more developed abstract style characterized by pared-down geometric forms and simple primary colors. Though tempting to think of the artist’s evolution as a tidy linear progression, this exhibition reveals the highly conflicted nature of Davis’s modernist development toward abstraction. With approximately thirty paintings and drawings the show follows Davis’s meandering trajectory toward an increasingly abstract, cohesive, and syncopated style.
