One of the most important American modernists, Stuart Davis blurred distinctions between text and image, high and low art, and abstraction and figuration, crafting a distinct style that continues to influence art being made today. On Sunday, Nov. 20, Stuart Davis: In Full Swing will open at the National Gallery of Art, West Building.

In Full Swing is the first Davis exhibition at the National Gallery of Art and the first major Davis exhibition anywhere to consistently hang later works side by side with the earlier ones that inspired them. The exhibition features some 100 of his most important, visually complex, jazz-inspired compositions, offering a new exploration of his working method.

Admission to In Full Swing is free, and it will run through March 5, 2017.
