Time for Art: Arthur Dove
|Arthur Dove, "Sunrise" (1924), Oil on Wood|
Arthur Dove (1880 - 1946) was one of the earliest American abstractionists. He is often paired with the better known Georgia O'Keefe, not only because he was part of the same circle surrounding Alfred Stieglitz, but more so I think because they often share similar tonal palettes and degrees of abstraction. In fact, when my wife and I visited the O'Keefe Museum in Santa Fe, they had an exhibition of Dove showing. You can read more about this painting at the website of Milwaukee Museum of Art.
