Stuart Davis was a major innovator and theorist in the evolution of American modernism and abstraction. Davis appropriation of images from popular culture throughout his career contributed to the aesthetic that was embraced by Pop artists in the 1960s. Blurring distinctions between what has historically been perceived as high and low art, between abstraction and figuration, and between text and imagery, Davis innovative works remain both resonant and relevant, and they continue to influence art today.
