Stuart Davis: An American in Paris
Art critic and curator Karen Wilkin presented a public talk at Sheldon Museum of Art on the energetic zeitgeist of 1920s Paris and its influence on artist Stuart Davis. "Arch Hotel,” one of Davis’s Paris paintings is part of the museum’s collection, having been acquired by the University of Nebraska in 1947 during the Nebraska Art Association’s 57th Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Art. Wilkin is the author of monographs on Stuart Davis, David Smith, and Anthony Caro, among others. She contributed to "Stuart Davis: American Painter" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and "Stuart Davis: a Retrospective" at the Peggy Guggenheim Foundation, Venice, and the Stedlijk, Amsterdam. A contributing editor of the "Stuart Davis Catalogue Raisonné," she curated the touring exhibitions "The Amazing Continuity: The Drawings of Stuart Davis," "Stuart Davis in Gloucester," and, with William C. Agee and Irving Sandler, "American Vanguards: Graham, Davis, Gorky, de Kooning 1927-1942." She contributes regularly to the Wall Street Journal, Hudson Review, and The New Criterion, and teaches at the New York Studio School.
