(1880-1946) was an early American modernist painter, and is often considered the first American abstract painter. During his early career, he worked in illustration. A trip to Paris and exposure to Matisse’s paintings opened his eyes to a different way of working, and shortly after returning to New York City, he began making the abstract paintings that strongly influenced such first generation Abstract Expressionists as Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock. One of his major collectors was Duncan Phillips, and the Phillips Collection in Washington DC now has the most extensive collection of Dove’s works. In addition, his work is in all the major museum collections in the United States.
