Biography

Charles Sheeler (July 16, 1883 – May 7, 1965) was an American painter andcommercial photographer. He is recognized as one of the founders of American modernism and one of the master photographers of the 20th century.

Sheeler painted using a technique that complemented his photography. He was a self-proclaimed Precisionist, a term that emphasized the linear precision he employed in his depictions. As in his photographic works, his subjects were generally material things such as machinery and structures. He was hired by the Ford Motor Co. to photograph and make paintings of their factories.
