Stuart Davis

Big time #tbt

The featured image for this Artsy article caught my eye because Stuart has always fascinated me– I’ve been known on more than one occasion to espouse the idea that abstract painting aspires to a condition which jazz naturally achieves (where form and content are indistinguishable). Great job by Jackson Arn to point out that Davis’s aspirations for his work “had already been achieved by virtuosic black musicians.”
