Daily Artwork — “Water, Charles Sheeler, 1945”

1945 — Water. Oil on Canvas. Percisionism style. Charles Sheeler (1883 – 1965). Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY, USA.

Water depicts one of the power generators built by the Tennessee Valley Authority in the 1930s, when hydroelectric power was being distributed throughout the Tennessee River region of the United States…His interpretation of American industry was somewhat idealized: workers are never shown, and the machinery is pristine and gleaming, free of any dirt or smoke.
