Untitled (Landscape)

  • Arthur Dove, Untitled (Landscape), ca. 1938, ink and watercolor on paper mounted on paperboard, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of the Sara Roby Foundation, 1993.22.1

Exhibition Label
Arthur Dove began creating small watercolors as studies for larger paintings, but he came to appreciate them as stand-alone works and by the 1930s began to include them in exhibitions. Lyrical color and freely sketched forms reveal Dove’s impulsive, of-the-moment response to nature and his surroundings. Although celebrated as one of the country’s most accomplished abstract artists, Dove captures the American landscape through gestural lines and washes of color.
