Gene Davis




Gene Davis is best known by far for his acrylic paintings of colorful vertical stripes. The paintings typically repeat particular colors to create a sense of rhythm and repetition with variations. 

In 1972 Davis created Franklin's Footpath, which was at the time the world's largest artwork, by painting colorful stripes on the street in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. 

It is simply a masterpiece of color.
