Summary/Review: Stuart Davis (1892 1964) was an American original. Trained as a realist painter, he became a pioneering abstract artist after seeing works by Van Gogh, Gauguin, Matisse, Picasso, and other European modernists at the Armory Show in New York in 1913. Davis's exuberant, colorful compositions echo the dynamism of the American scene and the rhythms of jazz, the artist s lifelong passion. This documentary surveys his career and includes original footage shot on location in New York and Gloucester, Massachusetts; interviews with scholars and a musician; images of Davis s paintings; and archival footage and photographs of the artist.
