Joseph Stella established himself as one of the country’s earliest abstract artists. A leader in the American futurist movement, Stella exhibited cubist-inspired work in the famous Armory Show of 1913, which introduced Americans to European modernism. He became known for his imposing images of urban New York City that expressed both excitement & imprisonment, but on his frequent travels he fully explored his love of nature. The large, impressive Flowers, Italy expresses that love in quasi-religious terms.
