Marsden Hartley Portrait of a German Officer (1914) oil on canvas 5’ 8 1/4” x 3’ 5 3/8” “…for want of a better term [I call these works] subliminal or cosmic cubism… I am convinced…that the intuition is the only vehicle for art expression and it is on this basis that I am proceeding. …My first impulses came from the mere suggestion of Kandinsky’s book The Spiritual in Art …the mere title opened up the sensation for me. In Kandinsky’s own work I do not find the same convincing beauty as his theories hold.” -- from a letter to Alfred Stieglitz (1912)

Stuart Davis Lucky Strike (1921) oil on canvas 2’ 9 ¼” x 1’ 6” Just as Fernand Léger drew upon his experiences in the modern European urban environment when formulating the pictorial languages of paintings such as The City , Stuart Davis took the personal ritual of smoking and transformed it into works that some call “syncopated cubism” in which the visual rhythms mimic the downbeat emphasis of some jazz compositions coming into popularity at the time.
