About the Artist
This ceramic mug features a wraparound reproduction of Stuart Davis's Report from Rockport (1940), included in the National Gallery of Art exhibition Stuart Davis: In Full Swing. The bustling town square of Rockport, Massachusetts features gas pumps, trees, and storefront signs amidst an array of colors, lines, and shapes. Davis also recalls the town’s thriving fishing industry with depictions of water, nautical flags, ropes, and a Seine-brand fishnet. Report from Rockport exemplifies Davis’s "color-space" theory, in which the juxtaposition of strong colors creates the illusion of depth.
