Please Pass the Salt --- Day 6/63

Walk: de Young Museum (Exhibiton and Lecture: Stuart Davis, Exhibition: Summer of Love
Distance: 4.2 miles, small yoga

Stuart Davis, Salt Shaker, 1931, oil on canvas, 49 7/8" x 32"

Ciwt has always liked Stuart Davis's art.  Arguably the first truly American modern artist working with the American vernacular (like a plane old salt shaker) but in modernist style (not exactly what a salt shaker looks like - except to his artistic eye).  We have an excellent show of his work here at the deYoung from the Whitney in New York throughout the spring and summer. Good; Ciwt looks forward to going several times.
