Buchbeschreibung Philadelphia : Museum of Art, 1983. Buchzustand: Sehr gut. 74 S. Ein gutes und sauberes Exemplar. - The century that has passed since the birth of Charles Demuth at 109 North Lime Street in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, has served to establish and intensify the admiration accorded his work, but, oddly, has brought his admirers little closer to an understanding of this elegant, self-deprecating figure. Five years older than his friend Marcel Duchamp, six years younger than Joseph Stella, who shared Demuth's fascination with industrial subject matter, he was at ease in the modernist circles of both New York and Paris, yet maintained a large measure of independence. Observers have often noted the surprising persistence within Demuth's oeuvre of quite diverse modes of working: the fluid washes and undulating lines of his watercolor studies of acrobats or flowers contrast with the crystalline arcs, lines, and planes of the architectural subjects. His love of Fragonard and El Greco emerges in his rendering of the lithe bodies of vaudeville dancers; his respect for Cézanne and the Cubists informs the delicate yet precise geometry of his paintings of Lancaster buildings. A friend of writers as well as painters, Demuth shared the keen eye of William Carlos Williams, Marianne Moore, and Gertrude Stein, and it seems likely that their clear, clean, and disjointed phrases may in turn have influenced his own art. Yet when he turned his hand to illustration, he chose the dense, rich prose of Henry James and the violent drama of Edgar Allan Poe, for which he drew scenes peopled with disturbing, often sinuous figures.
