About the book:

Considered one of the most significant painters of the period between the two world wars and founder of the precisionist school, Charles Sheeler (1883-1965) was also one of the pivotal photgraphers of the modernist movement in America. His direct style can be likened to that of his contemporaries Paul Strand, Edward Weston and Edward Steichen and he is probably best known for documenting the transformation of the American urban landscape (in both his photos and paintings), and for an early series of photos that pay homage to his 19th-century farmhouse in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. This text serves as a catalogue to a major retrospective of his work at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Essays by distinguished experts Theodore Stebbins Jr, Gilles Mora, Karen E. Haas and writings by Sheeler himself are included.
