Arthur Garfield Dove

Dove, Arthur Garfield (dŭv) [key], 1880–1946, American painter, b. Canandaigua, N.Y. Early in his career he did commercial illustration in New York City. Following a European trip (1907–9), he adopted an abstract style that flowered in the 1930s into fluid, poetic canvases based on forms in nature. Dove has subsequently been recognized as a precursor of the abstract expressionists. Examples of his work are Rise of the Full Moon and Pozzuoli Red (Phillips Gall., Washington, D.C.).
