Morgan Russell

Russell, Morgan, 1886–1953, American painter, b. New York City. Russell, together with Stanton Macdonald-Wright, founded synchromism in Paris in 1913. Structuring his paintings on interlocking planes of color, Russell created volume and mass with color alone, as in Synchromy in Orange: To Form (1913–14).
