Born in Canandaigua, upstate New York, Arthur Dove is credited as being the first innovative abstract painter in America.  Many of his abstractions showed obvious Oriental influence and were derived from landscape and organic subjects with color used freely and calligraphic line emphasizing energy or force.  Generally his method was to make watercolor sketches outdoors and later oil paintings in his studio.

He also made assemblages from a variety of materials including alu (showing 500 of 8542 characters).
