Book Title: The Masses

Bound book of 12 magazine issues with covers, January 1914 - December 1914.

The Masses was a radical journal published between 1911 and 1917. In the words of its editorial board, “This Magazine is Owned and Published Cooperatively by Its Editors...A Revolutionary and not a Reform Magazine; a Magazine with a Sense of Humor and No Respect for the Respectable; Frank; Arrogant; Impertinent; searching for the True Causes; a Magazine directed against Rigidity and Dogma wherever it is found...”

Stuart Davis, a friend of many of the “Ashcan” painters whose work appeared in The Masses, joined its editorial board in 1913 and resigned during the artists’ strike in 1916. The realistic style of this period of Davis’ work stands in sharp contrast to his later abstractions.
