Joseph Stella (American, b. Italy, 1877–1946)
Flowers, Italy, 1931
A leader in the American futurist movement, Joseph Stella was known for his imposing images of urban New York City. He also explored his love of nature, and Flowers, Italy expresses that love in quasi-religious terms. Recalling the brilliant colors of stained-glass windows, the composition creates a virtual cathedral of flora.
