Walt Kuhn: American Modern

Featured image, "Chorus Captain" (1935), is by the under-recognized American painter Walt Kuhn (1877-1949), one of the primary organizers of the landmark 1913 Armory Show, which introduced European Modernism to this country via such artists as Marcel Duchamp, Paul Cézanne and Henri Matisse, and brought prominence to Americans like Edward Hopper, Stuart Davis and John Marin. Though Kuhn's work can be found in most major American museum collections—primarily in the form of unorthodox portraits of show girls and circus performers—there have been very few one-person shows. In the spring, on the occasion of the 1913 Armory Show's 100th anniversary, New York's D.C. Moore Gallery righted this wrong with a "fresh look" at Kuhn, whose work was praised by Karen Rosenberg in The New York Times. "Chorus Captain" is reproduced from Walt Kuhn: American Modern.
