Ralston Crawford’s visions of man and machine at the Nelson-Atkins

Editorial Staff Exhibitions

A pioneer of precisionist painting and geometric abstraction as well as a celebrated photographer, Ralston Crawford (1906–1978) was equally fascinated by mankind and the man-made. Both subjects—and a link between Crawford’s artistic practices—are explored in the exhibition Structured Visions: The Photographs of Ralston Crawford at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
