Edward Fisk




There can be no return to the yesterday. We eat thunder, smoke, fire and steam and glory in our baroque life. The picturesque figures of the past seem sentimental when compared to the gigantic handling of life and material today.
   Edward Fisk

When it comes to early twentieth century modernism, Edward Franklin Fisk (1886 -1944) is something of an odd man out. Although his art was championed and exhibited by several New York galleries, his reputation never attained the mixture of glamour and spirituality enjoyed by his close friends Charles Demuth, Stuart Davis, and Eugene O’Neill.
