About this artwork

The harbor and fishing industries in Gloucester, Massachusetts, attracted Stuart Davis’s attention, and he repeatedly depicted them, focusing particularly on Gloucester’s docks during the 1930s in works like Fishing Equipment. This drawing shows Davis’s linear style and his use of mainly primary colors along with black and white, both of which were typical of his work at the time.
