Charles Sheeler

The Photography of Charles Sheeler: American Modernist
by Theodore E. Stebbins
Publisher's Description
"Charles Sheeler (1883-1965) occupied an essential place in the heart of American art—both as a painter (a master of the precisionist school) and a photographer. Beginning in 1915 Sheeler helped define what would become photographic modernism: a precise and factual approach to the real-stripped of pictorial convention-allowing photography's unique properties the task of representing objects in the world. In Sheeler's own words, photography possesses "an exactitude unequaled by any other form of expression." Edward Steichen, speaking for his fellow modernist photographers, once said of Sheeler, "Well before the rest of us, he was the first to master objectivity."-the publisher. This gorgeous new comprehensive monograph examines his often-neglected photographic oeuvre.
