Joseph Stella
Still Life (Figurine)



'Still Life (Figurine)' 1943 by famed American Modernist artist, Joseph Stella. Pencil and colored pencil on paper, 14.5 x 11.25 in. Dated on lower left and signed 'Joseph Stella' on lower right. This drawing features a stylized still life composition consisting of a white vase, pink rose in a vase, a plant, apple, scraps of paper, and a saint-like figure rendered in color pencils. A one-of-a-kind drawing by Joseph Stella. Joseph Stella (1877-1946) was an Italian-American painter, noted for his Futurist paintings depicting city architecture, religious themes, and modern culture. Born in Muro Lucano, Italy, he moved to New York in early adulthood and began his artistic career, studying at the Art Students League. Stella is known for creating unique Modernist paintings with bold color schemes and organic, sloping lines: an attempted melding of the natural world with human civilization. He executed abstract city themes, religious images, botanical and nature studies, erotic and steamy Caribbean landscapes, and colorful still-lifes of vegetables, fruits, and flowers. His strong draftsmanship is evident throughout the many kinds of images that he continued to make over the years. Stella is considered an important figure in American art history and is associated with the Futurist and Precisionist movements, gaining contact with prominent members of the New York art scene such as Alfred Stieglitz, Gertrude Stein, Albert Gleizes and Marcel Duchamp. His work is held among the collections of important institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art, NY, Yale University Art Gallery in New Haven and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
