Synchromy No. 3
In 1912 Stanton MacDonald-Wright and his colleague Morgan Russell invented the term Synchromy to refer to their experiments in making abstract compositions whose primary emphasis was on color. Although both artists were inspired by Cubism, they set out to reassert the importance of color in relationship to line in the creation of form.
