Stanton Macdonald-Wright (1890-1973) was a charismatic aesthete in his younger days as he soaked in the Parisian scene of the early 20th century. His seriousness, however, grew throughout his career as he became a restless promoter of modern art among his American peers. His development as an artist was focused on a movement of his own making, Synchromism. Color was Synchromism’s calling card, and like creating a recipe with only one ingredient, Macdonald-Wright would use it to create works that made sound visual, but also referenced more traditional art forms.
