Born in Philadelphia, Charles Sheeler created paintings, a few
lithographs, and photographs that reflected his aesthetic interest in
scenes of the early 20th-century American landscape. He became
the major exponent of Precisionism, a style of painting that emphasizes
clean-cut lines, simple
forms and large areas of flat color---creating a sense of order and
'precision', and a suggestion that the lines of those industrial

Sheeler was born in Philadelphia and studied there
at the School of Industrial Art, from 1900/01 to 1901/02. He was awarded Certificate A in Industrial Drawing in 1901, and Certificate B in Decorative Painting and Applied Art in 1902
