Joseph Stella 1877–1946

Joseph Stella, a modernist who explored numerous styles and subjects, is best known for his images of the Brooklyn Bridge. He was born in Muro Lucano, Italy in 1877. After growing up in Europe, he came to the United States in 1896 to study medicine. However, Stella quickly abandoned his medical studies and turned instead to art, studying with William Merritt Chase at the New York School of Art. From 1905 to 1909 he worked as an illustrator, publishing his realist drawings in magazines. A remarkable draftsman, he made drawings throughout the various phases of his career. Stella began as an academic realist, but his mature work is in a modernist style, notable for its sweeping and dynamic lines. Stella returned to visit Italy in 1909 and became associated with the Italian Futurists; he began to incorporate Futurist principles into his art. The Armory Show of 1913, in which Stella participated, may have provided him with greater impetus to experiment with modernist styles.
