评论: A pioneer among abstract painters of the South during the 1930s. During the 1920s, he painted traditional landscapes, but by the 1930s he was mixing realism with abstraction, and many paintings evolved into complete abstraction, especially in the 1940s. Earlier, in Cincinnati, he worked for a short time at the Rookwood Pottery. From 1921-48, he taught at Newcomb College, New Orleans, and at his own Stevens School of Art, Gatlinburg, TN, in the summers. He visited and painted in Valley Town, NC and Gatlinburg, TN.
