Well, as I said in an earlier post, my goal this past weekend was to visit the Gene Davis exhibit now showing in the Smithsonian American Art Museum. I'll take you on a tour over the next few days as well as share a few other works I spotted on the same floor. Davis called the piece shown above "Two Part Blue" and it was created in 1920 with magna on canvas.
"Gene Davis was a major figure in 20th-century American painting whose contribution was invaluable in establishing Washington, D.C., as a center of contemporary art. Davis also played a significant national and international role in the color abstraction movement that first achieved prominence in the 1960s." ~ Jacquelyn D. Serwer
