Mountains and Valleys

Victor Higgins (American, 1884-1949)


Higgins exhibits the influence of cubism in his use of geometric shapes enhanced by strong contrasts of light and dark.

The artist was affected by the 1913 New York armory show, where he came in contact with European and American Modernism.
