Although it was not a unified artistic movement, Precisionist artists did share an interest in technological themes and a style that celebrated the precise lines and formal beauty of machines. As a proponent of the industrial aesthetic, Louis Lozowick was involved in organizing the widely-influential 1927 <em>Machine-Age Exposition</em> in New York City. This groundbreaking exhibition included machines and machine parts alongside paintings, sculptures, and drawings by avant-garde artists. This drawing was likely related to Lozowick’s set design for a 1926 production of George Kaiser’s play <em>Gas</em>, about the dehumanization and need for spiritual regeneration caused by industrialization.
