With a body of work that combined the machine aesthetic of Marcel Duchamp and a subject matter that was of great concern to Americans of his generation, Charles Sheeler had a decades-long artistic career that is closely associated with the rise of American modernism. This online exhibition is designed to complement an in situ exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago, and overall, it does a nice job of conveying a sense of Sheeler’s work and focus. Interested users may wish to begin by reading an overview of Sheeler’s life, and also taking a look at the brief, yet thoughtful, bibliography of related works that tell the story of his life and times. Of course, the real essence of the site is the “Selected Works” area. Here, Sheeler’s devotees (and new converts) can look over works such as “Church Street El” and “Ballet Mechanique”.
