Property of a Gentleman
Morton Schamberg exerted an important influence on the early history of abstract art in the United States, both as a painter and photographer. Despite his untimely death at the age of 37 in 1918, he was a proponent of avant-garde aesthetics pioneering DADA constructions, Cubist form, and mechanical subject-matter. The latter anticipated Precisionism.
The present work seems to have taken its inspiration from the art that he saw in Paris 1907 to 1909 by Cézanne, Picasso, and Matisse. The intense palette and expressive brushstrokes owe a particular debt to Fauvism. The work would seem to have been done either in France or shortly after his return to New York in 1909. Following the Armory Show in 1913, Cubism became his primary interest.
