WHAT: Charles Sheeler: Fashion, Photography, and Sculptural Form curated by Kirsten M. Jensen, Ph.D., Gerry & Margeurite Lenfest Cheif Curator
WHERE: James A. Michener Art Museum, Doylestown, PA
“Featuring a collection of previously undiscovered work by Charles Sheeler, Charles Sheeler: Fashion, Photography, and Sculptural Form casts a new light on one of America’s best-known modernists.
Between 1926 and 1931, Charles Sheeler worked as a commercial photographer for Condé Nast, creating fashion images and portraits for Vanity Fair and Vogue. This remarkable body of work by Sheeler has not been publicly displayed in nearly ninety years. Comprising photographs and paintings by Sheeler along with fashions of the era, Charles Sheeler: Fashion, Photography and Sculptural Form evokes the personalities, glamour, and promise of the Jazz Age, and reveals for the first time how Sheeler’s “day job” at Condé Nast shaped his aesthetic vision and artistic career.”
