Charles Sheeler, Golden Gate, 1955.
Charles Sheeler is arguably one of the best known and prolific of the Precisionists, whose sharp focus and "objective" style derives in part from the influence of photography. Over a career spanning almost sixty years, Sheeler created numerous series documenting the industrial achievements of the United States, including San Francisco's iconic Golden Gate Bridge. These works capture the ambitious achievements of the Machine Age of the early twentieth century, ranging from the harnessing of nature for facilitating transportation to the propulsion of a jet engine. 500 pieces.
