Book Description 
  
Considered one of the most significant American painters of the period between the two world wars, and founder of the precisionist school, Charles Sheeler (1883-1965) was also one of the pivotal photographers of the modernist movement in this country. His direct style can be likened to that of contemporaries Paul Strand, and Edward Weston. Sheeler is perhaps best-known for documenting the transformation of the American industrial landscape (in both painting and photography), and for an early series of photographs of his Doylestown, PA, house. A major retrospective dedicated to Sheeler's work is being organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and this book will serve as the catalog.
