Charles Sheeler: Across Media

is the first exhibit to focus on the relationships among photography, film, and painting in the works of Charles Sheeler (1883-1965). This American modernist explored those relationships with more rigor and discipline than perhaps any other artist of his generation. (National Gallery of Art)

Interesting Fact:

Sheeler was trained at the School of Industrial Art in Philadelphia from 1900 to 1902. He then enrolled at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts from 1903 to 1906. In early 1909, on a trip to Paris, he encountered the revolutionary works of Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and other European modernists.
