Charles Demuth: Definitively Modern
By: the Demuth Museum
Demuth played a vital role in the American modernist art scene both abroad and at home while surrounded by the who's who of the expatriate art scene and close friends including, Leo and Gertrude Stein, Marsden Hartley, Eugene O'Neill, and Marcel Duchamp. Demuth soaked up the experience and dynamism that was life as an artist in the early 20th century and brought it home to his studio on East King Street in Lancaster, where his primary subject matter was the city of Lancaster and his mother's flower garden. Lampe noted, "This exhibit also coincides with our Annual Garden Tour and examples of his portrayals of his mother's garden will be represented. Garden Tour weekend is a great way for people to learn about Charles, his artwork and celebrate this wonderful city that Charles held so dearly to his heart. The fact that Lancaster City was his subject matter and his art work was held in such high regard nationally and internationally is remarkable."
