Joseph Stella (American 1877-1946)

Perhaps best known for his images of the Brooklyn Bridge, Joseph Stella was one of the most original and productive artists working in the United States during the first half of the twentieth century. In 1896, the artist immigrated from Italy to New York and studied briefly at the Art Students League, then at the New York School of Art with William Merritt Chase. He began his career as an academic realist and then experimented with Futurism and later Dadaism, while at the same time developing his own individualistic form of Modernism.
