Precisionist

America, 1920's to 1930's

Precisionism (also known as Cubist Realism) is a style of representation in which an object is rendered realistically, but with an emphasis on its geometrical form. An important development in American Modernism, it was inspired by the development of Cubism in Europe. Charles Sheeler and Charles Demuth are most closely associated with Precisionism. The urban works of Georgia O'Keeffe are also highly typical of this style. Dealing as it did with pure form more than with narrative or subject matter, Precisionism gradually evolved towards Abstraction, and faded away as an important influence.
