George Ault

George Ault (1891 – 1948) was an American painter known for his precise and stark renderings of urban and rural landscapes. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Ault’s work often conveyed a sense of order, solitude, and underlying tension.

Ault’s painting style was associated with Precisionism, a movement that emphasized clear, sharply defined forms and often incorporated industrial and architectural subjects. His works, such as “August Night at Russell’s Corners,” reveal a meticulous attention to detail and a preference for geometric simplicity.

Inspiration for his paintings came from his surroundings, both in the bustling city and the quiet countryside. He was drawn to ordinary scenes, yet infused them with an eerie stillness and sense of isolation that transcended the mundane.

Artists with similar styles include other Precisionists like Charles Sheeler and Charles Demuth, who shared Ault’s focus on architectural forms and industrial landscapes. Their works often reflect a similar fascination with structure, clarity, and a somewhat detached perspective.

George Ault’s contributions to American art are marked by his ability to transform everyday scenes into contemplative and often disquieting compositions. His distinctive vision and carefully crafted paintings offer a unique glimpse into the American landscape during his time. Ault’s work continues to be recognized for its originality, precision, and evocative power, providing a lasting influence on modern American art.
