Om Charles Demuth: 116 Masterpieces
Charles Demuth was an American watercolor artist who turned to oils late in his career, developing a style of painting known as Precisionism. Combining exacting botanical observation and loosely Cubist abstraction, his watercolors of flowers, fruit and vegetables have a magical liveliness and an almost shocking sensuousness. Though plagued by illness all his life, Charles Demuth created over a 1000 works of art. During his art career Demuth sold many of his works, enjoyed favorable reviews from art critics and was part of Alfred Stieglitz's American Place Gallery in New York. Although he studied and painted in Philadelphia, New York, Provincetown, Paris and Bermuda, Demuth created most of his finished artworks in his Lancaster, Pennsylvania, home where he worked in a small second floor studio overlooking the garden. Nowadays his home is the Demuth Museum, which showcases his work.
