Charles Sheeler

Charles Sheeler was a key figure in the American Precisionist Movement in the early 20th Century. He had careers as both a successful painter and as a photographer.

Probably best known for a series of images he made for the Ford Motor Company to promote the release of the Model A, Sheeler’s black and white factory images communicate the symbols of power, wealth and productivity that reflected the aesthetic of the 1920’s.
