Biography   Charles Sheeler


/ SHEE-ler /    click to hear
Born in Philadelphia, Charles Sheeler created paintings, a few lithographs, and photographs that reflected his aesthetic interest in industrial 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 structures cut through people lives psychologically.

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   ...  Displaying 750 of 2637 characters.
