Tree-of-My-Life

Description

Standing before the teeming terrain of Joseph Stella’s Tree of My Life  (1919), Tylee Abbott, Vice President of American Art at Christie’s, is moved to describe it as ‘a eureka moment — not just for the artist but for all of American modernism.’ 

Joseph Stella was born in the town of Muro Lucano in the south of Italy in 1877. He emigrated to the United States in the late 1890s and began studies in medicine before deciding to become an artist instead. In 1913, his work featured — alongside that of major Europeans such as PicassoMatisse and Duchamp — in the landmark Armory Show in New York, the exhibition that is widely held to have launched modern art in America.
