Stuart Davis with Combination Concrete #2 in progress on easel, at his studio, NY, Summer 1958
“I can work from Nature, from old sketches and paintings of my own, from photographs, and from other works of art. In each case the process consists of transposition of the forms of the subject into a coherent, objective color-space continuum, which evokes a direct sensate response to structure.”
Stuart Davis, February 11, 1942.
"I see the Artist as a Cool Spectator-Reporter at an Arena of Hot Events."
