Charles Demuth was one of the first American artists to be receptive to modernism, to which he was exposed during several extensive and significant trips to Europe. While abroad, he became involved with Gertrude and Leo Stein, Jo Davidson and Ezra Pound in Paris. Further contact with avant-garde styles and ideas came through the frequent trips he made from Lancaster to New York, where his close associates included Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O’Keeffe, Marsden Hartley and Marcel Duchamp.
